We are proud to provide our students with outstanding undergraduate and graduate educational opportunities in the fields of actuarial science, mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education.
Logic, analytical thinking, recognizing patterns, and the ability to organize data – the skills learned in a mathematics classroom – will always be in high demand in the workforce. Careers include medicine, law, economics, consulting, teaching and more.
We offer undergraduate- and graduate-level programs in mathematics with both pure and applied concentrations taught by leading mathematicians.
These programs foster analytical skills and habits of mind that are essential for a broad range of careers in which these attributes figure prominently.
Examples of career areas include industrial modeling, operations research, security (government and private), engineering, law, research, and teaching. We also have a strong history of preparing students for success in graduate school.
We offer three programs in mathematics:
The master of arts or master of science in statistics program provides opportunities for graduates with a quantitative background to achieve profound knowledge in statistical and computational methods to tackle a variety of research and analytical roles in today’s data-centric world.
The master's program in statistics provides students with the background suitable for employment as a statistician in business, industry, or government. The degree also provides suitable preparation for pursuing a PhD degree in statistics.
We also offer a certificate in statistical modeling.
If analyzing and solving problems that affect people's financial security interests you, you should consider a major in actuarial science. You’ll receive a solid foundation in the mathematics and business education that you need to become an actuary and become prepared to take the professional exams.
We have one of the few programs in the United States that offers both a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in actuarial science. Students also can complete a minor in foundations of business for actuarial science and mathematics majors.
When it’s time to seek your first internship or job, you’ll be able to interview with some of the nation’s top employers right here on campus.
