Chair's Corner

Welcome to Wright State University's Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Our department provides courses in service of virtually every academic program university wide. We offer undergraduate and masters degrees in mathematics and in statistics. Our experienced and enthusiastic faculty engage in original research in pure and applied mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education. Students frequently pursue directed research alongside faculty.

The links at the top and right on this page will take you to information about our faculty, undergraduate and graduate programs, courses offered, department news and events, and other useful information for students. We encourage prospective students to contact listed advisors for further information about programs of interest.

Mathematics and statistics find important uses in virtually all facets of scientific and commercial activity. They are particularly well-suited as languages for the quantitative analysis of complex problems, whether these problems arise in engineering, biological, economic, or a myriad other contexts. The study of mathematics and statistics is a rewarding endeavor, both personally and professionally. We invite you to explore the world of mathematics and statistics with us.
