The Department of Mathematical Sciences consists of faculty grouped into three broad areas: pure and applied mathematics, math education, and statistics. Our department offers bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics with different areas of specialization. Master’s Degrees in Mathematics, Mathematics Education, and Statistics are also offered. There are even combined BS/MS programs to get both a bachelor’s and master’s degrees in less time. For mathematics educators interested in making contributions to research, we offer a PhD in Mathematics Education.
