Department of Mathematics and Statistics
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers programs of study leading to the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. Certificate programs in Applied Mathematics, and Applied Statistics and Data Analysis are also offered as is a Master of Science in Applied Statistics. Additionally, formal minors may be declared in either area. The department is one of the largest in the state in terms of graduates in both mathematics and mathematics education.
Majors and minors in mathematics or statistics prepare you for success in many fields, including a surprising variety of professions because of the increasing demand for quantitative literacy and the shortage of people with those skills. Employment prospects upon graduation are further enhanced with the choice of appropriate interdisciplinary electives. Among these are courses in computer science, biology, chemistry or any of the business areas. Recent KSU graduates with majors or minors in mathematics or statistics have also been accepted into graduate programs in a variety of areas including mathematics, statistics, epidemiology, psychology, and kinesiology. Study of mathematics is excellent preparation for graduate and professional school entrance examinations such as the GMAT (Graduate Management Admissions Test), GRE (Graduate Record Examination), LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) and the MCAT (Medical College Aptitude Test).
