Thank you for your interest in the undergraduate mathematics programs at Kent State University. The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers a wide variety of options and mathematical areas for students who wish to pursue a major or minor in mathematics. All of our programs are designed to broaden and deepen your mathematical perspective and understanding.
We offer major and minor programs in both pure and applied mathematics. The pure mathematics major is very flexible in order to meet your individual needs and interests. The applied mathematics major allows for a concentration in classical applied mathematics, computational mathematics, probability and statistics, or financial mathematics. Our programs can prepare you for employment in industry, government, or education, or prepare you for graduate study.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences has approximately 26 faculty in diverse areas, including algebra, analysis, topology, applied mathematics, probability, and statistics. The faculty is committed to quality teaching enhanced by original mathematical research. This results in an academic atmosphere that encourages your intellectual growth and development.
With a strong high school mathematics background, you will probably begin with the first course in our calculus sequence, although some students starting a mathematics program may require a pre-calculus course. All mathematics majors and minors take calculus, linear algebra, and introductory computer science before proceeding to more advanced courses.
