The Department of Mathematics and Statistics provides the University community with a complete spectrum of curriculum in our disciplines, from introductory-level general education courses to doctoral dissertation direction and postdoctoral mentoring. The Department offers undergraduate majors a broad array of options through which they can earn the bachelor's degree. The graduate program awards Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics and Statistics and has M.S. programs in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. These degrees may be earned while concentrating in one or more of several possible areas of study. The graduate program also houses a professional master's degree program in applied mathematics. This program prepares its students to participate and contribute in the high-technology industrial world, and its graduates are highly sought after by that community.
The Department has 49 full-time faculty members, 5 of whom hold postdoctoral appointments at the Visiting Assistant Professor rank, and 78 graduate students. Several centers and special facilities are resident in the Department, these include: the Center for Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Computation and the Center for Geometry, Analysis, Numerics, and Graphics (GANG).
