Bachelor of Arts
The Mathematical Sciences Department is designed to meet the ever-increasing demands for diverse quantitative skills.
By making different choices from technical electives, students can tailor their degrees to prepare for these various careers. Those who plan to teach mathematics or work in engineering or the physical sciences should choose mathematics courses. Those who wish to apply mathematical methods to life sciences, social sciences, actuarial sciences or business fields should choose statistics courses. Any of these choices provide excellent preparation for graduate work in fields that need quantitative skills.
A minor in mathematical sciences augments a student’s background in mathematics by increasing knowledge of mathematics, operations research, or statistics — knowledge that is useful in careers in teaching, research, industry, or management.
There are two options for studying mathematics at UIS: on campus or online.
The Mathematical Science Department will accept new students each fall and spring semester. For best consideration, students should submit application materials as early as possible prior to the semester in which they would like to attend. Contact the online coordinator for specific information.
