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.

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.
Students who are completing a non-math degree can choose to complete a minor in either mathematics or statistics.
Students who are completing a non-math degree can choose to complete a dual degree in either mathematics or statistics.
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:
- Master of Science in Mathematics
- Master of Science in Applied Mathematics
- Master of Science in Applied Statistics
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.
