The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers several programs leading to a bachelor's degree in mathematics or statistics. The Bachelor of Science in mathematics program offers four concentrations: pure mathematics, applied mathematics, computing, and mathematics education. These four programs as well as the Bachelor of Science in Statistics program are adaptable to many postgraduation goals, ranging from various scientific or professional careers to graduate school. The Bachelor of Arts program provides a broad background in mathematics with a liberal arts orientation.

Majors

B.S. - M.S. Combined Degree Programs

Students who wish to pursue both a Bachelor's degree and a Masters degree in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics or Statistics can choose to complete a combined Bachelor of Science and Master of Scence degree in 5 years.

Minors

Students who are completing a non-math degree can choose to complete a minor in either mathematics or statistics.

Dual Majors

Students who are completing a non-math degree can choose to complete a dual degree in either mathematics or statistics.

Graduate Programs

Mathematics and Statistics Graduate Degree Programs are designed to prepare students for careers in teaching, industry, and government, as well as to provide a solid foundation for further academic work or professional training. Students can choose from three concentrations:

Each program requires the completion of 30 semester hoursof graduate level courses and comprehensive written exams in core subject areas, with an option of completing a Master's thesis in Math or a modeling project in Applied Math. Full-time students normally should expect it to take two years to complete their programs. For the convenience of part-time students, almost all MTH and STT graduate courses that a student would include in their program of study are offered in the late afternoon or evening.

If you need more information or have questions about these programs, please contact our graduate advisors, or consult the Wright State Graduate Catalog or the department's Statistics Programs webpage.

Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Applied Science and Mathematics

The IASM PhD program is designed primarily for students possessing a B.S. or M.S. degree in mathematics, physics or other related disciplines. The program focuses on three areas: Materials and Nanoscale Science and Technology Development; Modeling and Analysis for Physical and Biological Systems; and Computational Problems in the Physical and Biological Sciences.

The proposed curriculum requires core courses that will prepare students for their dissertation work by focusing on research methodology, ethics, and scientific writing in addition to courses in advanced mathematics and computation. Eight focus area courses and four electives are also required. Projected full time equivalent enrollment ranges from five students in the first year, to 25 students in the fifth year. The IASM PhD program is designed primarily for students possessing a B.S. or M.S. degree in mathematics, physics or other related disciplines. The program focuses on three areas: Materials and Nanoscale Science and Technology Development; Modeling and Analysis for Physical and Biological Systems; and Computational Problems in the Physical and Biological Sciences.
