The Department of Mathematics offers an innovative and comprehensive undergraduate BS degree program in mathematics from which a major may select one of three emphasis options:

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Statistics
  • Mathematics Teaching

Students are encouraged to be creative in putting together a course of study that will lead to the fulfillment of individual professional goals. The curricula are rigorous and demanding but flexible enough to allow students to sample several disciplines or to focus on a special interest within the major area. Faculty advisors assists each student on a continual basis to ensure proper course selection relative to career goals.

Our program provides quality instruction, research and outreach programs in mathematics that produce independent learners equipped with approaches to problem solving and decision-making techniques. Students are prepared to meet and exceed challenges of their chosen careers and function in the mainstream of the communities in which they live.

The department trains competent mathematics teachers and prospective mathematicians, engineers, scientists, and other mathematics based and/or related professionals with the knowledge-based necessary to perform successfully in graduate and professional schools and in the world of work.


Through interdisciplinary programs, experiential learning opportunities, and research partnerships, the Department of Mathematics continues to be an innovative force in undergraduate and graduate education. Our curriculum equips students with critical thinking, analytical skills and high quality mathematics content knowledge and prepares them to make an impact on the global community. In fact this is why, the mathematics department periodically reviews and revises it undergraduate and graduate programs.

The Department of Mathematics takes pride of housing a number of faculty members, who are among the top teachers and some who are among the top internationally known researchers and publishers. It is the quality of these faculty members that is making the quality of degree programs high.
