We offer the following graduate programs: PhD Mathematical Sciences, PhD Mathematics Education, MA/MS Mathematics, MS Statistics, MS Mathematics for Teachers, Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics, Graduate Certificate in Mathematics for Middle School Mathematics Teachers.
The department has active research areas in mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education. Faculty have earned several prestigious research grants from Oregon Departments of Education, Transportation, Fish and Wildlife, Intel, OHSU, and the National Science Foundation
The math placement test uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what you know, don't know and are ready to learn. Some introductory courses in mathematics, statistics, chemistry, physics, and engineering use the math placement test for registration purposes.
Earn a bachelor's degree in mathematics or data science. We also offer two minors: a Minor in Mathematics and a Minor in Mathematics for Middle School Teachers. Outstanding students may also apply for an Honors Track in Mathematics and Statistics.
