    Academic Division: Physical and Computational Sciences

    Program Description:

    Our Mathematics Program is a teaching-focused undergraduate program. We currently have four full-time and one part-time faculty who teach and do research in several mathematical fields. We offer Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics, Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics with concentration in Actuarial Science, and Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics with concentration in Physics, as well as Mathematics minor. Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for careers in mathematical sciences, education, and other careers requiring strong mathematical skills, while engaging students in creative projects which culminate in capstone theses. We also offer courses for the non-math majors that satisfy the core or General Education requirements, and provide interest and basic problem-solving skills. All our faculty members care about our students professionally and are genuinely student-oriented.

    As part of our outreach effort to the community, we sponsor jointly with Jamestown Community College an annual math competition for local high school students. This gives students from high schools in the region a chance to interact with students with similar interest.

    Minor Requirements

    A minor in math modeling may be earned by completing the following course requirements:

    Math electives:

    • Must include two upper-level math courses - 6-8 Credits

    Total Credits: 20-22

    Please be advised

    Please be advised that some programs or courses of study require that students complete rotations, fieldwork, internships/externships and/or teaching assignments at facilities external to the university, while other programs or courses of study may offer voluntary internships or externships at facilities external to the university. Depending on the program or course, such facilities will or may require a criminal background check, an act 33/34 clearance (if applicable), and perhaps a drug screen to determine participant qualification or eligibility. Additionally, in order to become licensed, many states will inquire as to whether the applicant has been convicted of a misdemeanor, a felony, or a felonious or illegal act associated with alcohol and/or substance abuse.
