The Department of Mathematics offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics. The Bachelor of Science is primarily intended for students wishing to pursue graduate work in mathematics. For students interested in different careers, the Department of Mathematics also offers the following options: applied mathematics, mathematical physics, computer science, statistical science, and management science. The applied mathematics and mathematical physics options are intended for students wishing to pursue graduate work in mathematical science. The computer science option is intended for those students who wish to seek employment relating to mathematical computing. The statistics and management science options are intended for students with an interest in a career involving various applications of mathematics to the world of business.

The objectives of the Mathematics Department’s program at the master’s level are (1) to develop the student’s ability to do independent research and prepare for more advanced study in mathematics, and (2) to give advanced training to professional mathematicians, mathematics teachers, and those employed in engineering, scientific, and business areas. Graduate work will be offered in algebra, topology, complex and real variables, differential equations, functional analysis, geometry, numerical analysis, operations research, and statistics.
The Department of Mathematics offers three programs leading to the Master of Science Degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistical Science.

The Doctor of Philosophy degree in the Mathematics Department provides programs of study that may be tailored to meet the needs of those interested in applied or academic careers. The nature of the dissertation will range from research in mathematics to the discovery and testing of mathematical models for analyzing given problems in sciences, and in locating and developing mathematical and computational techniques for deducing the properties of these models so as to solve these problems effectively and efficiently. Such dissertations will be concerned with research problems from such areas as pure mathematics, applied mathematics, probability, statistics, computer science, and engineering.
