Mathematics Program

The mathematics group of the department includes 16 faculty, more than 20 graduate students, and several adjunct faculty.

At the undergraduate level, we currently offer the BS and BA degrees to over 140 students, as well as a minor in mathematics. For more information, see the undergraduate catalog or contact the undergraduate coordinator Dr. John Alford.

At the graduate level, we offer the MS degree in mathematics (with currently more than 20 full time students). It is a two-year, 36-hour program with a thesis option. For more information, see the graduate catalog of our mathematics graduate program, or contact the graduate advisor, Dr. Brandy Doleshal. See the Graduate Handbook for Mathematics and Statistics

The research areas of our mathematics faculty include:

  • commutative algebra
  • topological groups
  • differential topology
  • combinatorics
  • wavelets and applied harmonic analysis
  • mathematical biology
  • numerical analysis
  • computational algebraic geometry
  • difference sets
  • algebraic statistics
  • C*-algebras
  • probability theory

There are many opportunities for students, both graduate and undergraduate, to be involved in research projects with faculty. In addition to invaluable experience, research projects provide opportunities for travel to national and regional conferences, and often stipends from research grants.
