For more information, please visit the Department’s website or check your course syllabi, which are available through the course instructor or at the High Library.

The major programs in Mathematical Sciences are designed to prepare students either for graduate study of mathematics, for secondary teaching of mathematics, or for employment in fields that make heavy use of mathematics, such as actuarial science, engineering, or statistics. Service courses offered by Mathematical Sciences provide students in the physical, managerial, social, and life sciences with the mathematical tools essential for their respective fields. Some of these courses also satisfy the College Core requirement in the area of Mathematics. Core courses in Mathematics are designed to help students discover the cultural significance of mathematics and its contribution to the modern world and to promote the development of proficiency with deductive reasoning, problem-solving strategies, computational skills, and using mathematics to model real-world phenomena.

Majors Offered

The Department offers majors in Actuarial Science , Mathematical Business , and Mathematics . The Mathematics major offers three concentrations: Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, and Mathematics Secondary Education .

Minor Offered

In addition to the three majors, the Department offers a Mathematics minor . The Department also participates in the interdisciplinary Data Analytics minor  and the General Science minor .

Honors in the Discipline

The Department of Mathematical Sciences participates in the College Honors in the Discipline Program. For guidelines, students should consult the Department Chair.
