Overview

The objectives of the Mathematical Sciences Department are to provide opportunities for students to develop functional competence in mathematics; an appreciation for the contributions of mathematics to science, engineering, business, economics, and the social sciences; and the power of critical thinking. The Department strives to prepare students to pursue graduate study and for careers in teaching, government, and industry.

The Department aims to provide the student with a course of study directed toward an understanding of mathematical theory and its relation to other fields of study. This study includes an emphasis on precision of definition, reasoning to precise conclusions, and an analysis and solution of problems using mathematical principles.

Students who select a major in the Department must complete the general education program which is required of all students. Request more information
