Mathematical Sciences



Mathematics is an essential grounding for many different disciplines and is used in many of the sciences for quantifying statistics and data. 

Mathematics gains you a general framework in mathematics which will suit the critical thinking and problem-solving skills required in varying fields.


The objectives of the Mathematics Program are:

  • to provide training to enable graduates to be employed by any of a number of private industries, government agencies, foundations, and institutions requiring high-level quantitative skills and a highly developed ability to think critically and logically;
  • to provide training to enable graduates to enter graduate school in mathematics or related areas;
  • to provide training to enable graduates to assume careers as teachers of mathematics in secondary schools;
  • to develop proficiency in basic mathematical operations and develop skills in the use of formulas for the solution of problems;
  • to provide science and engineering majors the mathematical skills required by their various programs of study.
