The department has approximately 20 full-time tenure-track faculty members forming groups in Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics (Modelling and Computation), Combinatorics and Optimization, Mathematics Education, Statistics and Topology making it truly a Department of Mathematical Sciences.
The department offers a Bachelor's Degree with emphases in Pure Math, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics Education, Combinatorics and Optimization, Combined Mathematical Sciences-Computer Science and Statistics. The department offers three graduate degrees: a Master of Arts in Teaching Mathematics (for high school teachers), a Master of Arts Degree and a Ph.D. Degree with essentially the same emphases as the Bachelor's Degree. The Ph.D. has two options, one requiring a standard research thesis and the other a thesis that can be expository in nature. All of the department's Ph.D.s except two have accepted positions in four year colleges as their first job. Most are still teaching in four year colleges and all have been very successful. The department has strong, active faculty members in all areas of mathematics that it covers. Approximately half of the faculty is currently active on national committees of professional organizations in the Mathematical Sciences, many on several committees.

There are approximately 100 undergraduate majors and 35 graduate students in the department. There are several computer labs available on campus. The Math Building has two computer labs with Mathematica, MATLAB, S-Plus and other specialized software.

Three five-year multi-million dollar grants from the National Science Foundation are currently funding mathematics curriculum projects for 6-12 within the department. The department typically has 8-10 active seminars going each semester. These seminars provide a substantial portion of the education for our Ph.D. students. An active colloquium series brings speakers to the department from around the country and the world. Nearly half of the faculty members have written college level mathematics textbooks.
