The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers major programs
leading to both the B.A. and B.S. in Mathematics and a B.S. program
in Statistics.
Within B.A./B.S. programs in Mathematics the
following Areas of Concentration are available:
Concentration in Graduate Study
Concentration in Applied Mathematics
Concentration in Optimization and Operations Research
Concentration in Actuarial Science
Concentration in Statistical Sciences
Concentration in Mathematical Education
Within the B.S. program in Statistics, the Department offers the

Students in other departments may pursue a minor or a second major in
Mathematics or Statistics.
Questions on Mathematics and Statistics Foundations Courses
Questions about 100 or 200 level Mathematics and Statistics Courses
(prerequisites, problems signing up for a course, etc.) should be directed
to the instructor of the course.
The evaluation of transfer credits is coordinated by the Registrar's Office
and you would need to submit the Transfer Credit Form there.
The following list has some useful links.
