# Mathematics

Mathematics is among the oldest disciplines. Throughout history, mathematics has spanned the spectrum from pure to applied areas. The ancient Greek mathematicians were interested in problems that ranged from properties of numbers to applications of mathematics to music and astronomy. The department of mathematics, statistics and physics fulfills its mission by offering a broad and representative collection of courses to give students the ability to select, with their advisors, a program that fits their needs and goals. The department of mathematics, statistics and physics offers bachelor’s (BA and BS), master’s (MS), and doctoral (PhD) degrees.
