Mathematics is the foundation and common language of physics, science, engineering, and computer science. In addition, there is a rich history of the influence of mathematics on economics, business, and even on arts and music. Our Department offers a full range of courses in applied and pure mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education for elementary and secondary certification.
