The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences offers a diverse range of program options and research opportunities. Our programs include a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, and an MS and PhD in Applied Mathematics. We also offer a Statistics Certificate option. In addition, our Undergraduate and Graduate programs offer further specialization opportunities. Students at all levels are not only exposed to a wide range of mathematical coursework, but are also encouraged to work with faculty and the community. Students and faculty, as well as business organizations, collaborate on interdisciplinary team-based research projects in industrial and applied math.
Our faculty have varied research areas of interest, including computational biology, computational mathematics, discrete mathematics, numerical analysis, operations research, optimization, probability and statistics. Faculty research has produced funding from numerous external sources including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes for Health, and the Department of Defense. Our mission is to provide a quality education to all students at all levels, from service courses through the highest level of Graduate instruction.
