Mathematics is studied both as a tool and for its own sake. Its usefulness for the sciences and in decision-making processes makes it an indispensable part of many curricula. Mathematics is challenging, fascinating, and beautiful; and it is also appreciated by many who seek primarily to use mathematics as a tool.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences provides students with the training in mathematics and statistics necessary for success in their careers. The instructional mission of the department has three components: we offer general education quantitative literacy courses; we provide the mathematical background for students preparing for careers in other fields; and we offer a quality program of mathematical specialization at all levels, ranging from an undergraduate minor to bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees in a variety of fields, including teacher preparation.
