Degree Programs & Courses

Our mathematics and statistics programs prepare students to analyze complex discipline-based issues, synthesize information from multiple sources and perspectives, communicate skillfully in oral and written forms, and use appropriate technologies.

The flexibility of our programs give students the opportunity to mold their degree to their particular interests. Many of our students pursue careers in industry (e.g. engineering, finance, business), teaching to government service immediately upon graduation. Others continue on to graduate school, then pursue careers in research or university teaching.
