"Mathematics is one of the essential emanations of the human spirit - a thing to be valued in and for itself, like art or poetry." - Oswald Vebren


The Mathematics Department Degree Program prepares students for employment in the private or public sector, graduate school, and scientific research. Studying Mathematics naturally develops quantitative thinking and analytic problem solving, skills with universal application. Demand will always be high for individuals with these universal skills to solve society’s diverse and complex problems.

Students majoring in Math now have two choices, the Concentration option or the No Concentration option. The Concentration in Data Science is a popular choice; it prepares students for a job as a Data Scientist, as well as providing a strong background for many other careers. Data Science is the art and science of transforming raw data into deliverable data products in order to help businesses or government agencies make more informed decisions.
