Objectives for the Program in Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics serves all students at the university. Mathematics majors receive a comprehensive foundation in abstract and applied mathematics as preparation for graduate school or a professional career. Minors in Mathematics receive the mathematical foundation needed for advanced work in their major field.

The department also provides non-majors with courses for their major or with courses for their Liberal Arts and Sciences program.

Applied Mathematics Concentration

Applied Mathematics is the study of mathematics that is often used in other technical disciplines such as Chemistry, Biology, Engineering, Physics, Economics and Computer Science. Students who complete the concentration in Applied Mathematics will have a strong mathematical background, an emphasis in a second field and will be able to integrate the mathematics within that field.

Minor Requirement

Choose one of the following minors: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Geographic Science and Technology/Earth Systems Science, Psychological Science, or minor approved by the Mathematics Department.
