Contact: Marius Buliga, Program Director

Mathematics includes the study of probability and statistics, modeling, computer simulation languages, and methods of application. Mathematics provides an excellent foundation for other fields of study ranging from the sciences and technology to business and law. The combination of mathematics, physics, and computer science creates opportunities for employment and also prepares students for graduate study. Applied Mathematics majors can simultaneously earn a degree in Mathematics Education by taking some education courses.
