The School of Mathematics in the College of Science & Engineering offers Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees in mathematics and includes specializations in actuarial science, mathematical biology, computer applications of mathematics, and math education. Sixty-five faculty members teach more than 350 undergraduate student majors. Mathematics majors choose from a rich range of courses, and the major curriculum is further supplemented by technical electives and coursework in physics. Some students broaden career options by taking classes in complementary disciplines like engineering, physics, or economics. Undergraduate students also have numerous opportunities to get involved in research through UROP, REUs, and other undergraduate research programs.
In its first-edition Writing Plan, the School of Mathematics is undertaking three projects, including an assessment of senior paper/capstone writing projects, ongoing faculty, instructor, and TA discussions on assigning and responding to writing in homework, and a pilot intervention in Introduction to Topology to develop writing assignments assessed by department generated writing criteria.
