The Department of Mathematics has 19 full-time faculty members and offers programs leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Science (BS) and Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and in Statistics. It also offers programs leading to the degree of Master of Science (MS) and Master of Arts (MA) in Mathematics.The Department of Mathematics subscribes to the view that “Mathematics as an expression of the Human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection". Through the different fields of Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Number Theory, Statistics, and Applied Mathematics, the Department aims to train students in quantitative reasoning, in dealing with abstraction, in enhancing their sense of formalism, in tackling Mathematical problems, and in writing clear and rigorous proofs. The training will help the student acquire a sound balance between abstract generality and colorful individuality, and between the qualitative and quantitative aspects of Mathematics. It also will help the student master the theory through a clear comprehension of the theoretical aspects, but without losing sight of applications. Graduates of the Mathematics Department should be well placed to work in various professional areas of Education, Finance, Information Technology, or for pursuing graduate studies in Mathematics or a related area.
