Mission Statement

We are a community of scholars specializing in mathematics and statistics whose primary mission is to provide a high quality, student-centered learning experience across the university curriculum. In particular, we provide an in-depth foundation in mathematics and statistics for Coastal’s science students. As proponents of the teacher-scholar model, our faculty aspire to engage in curriculum development and both interdisciplinary and discipline specific research. We place emphasis on students whose academic interests lie in mathematics and statistics by offering them individualized education. This includes mentoring, undergraduate research, and preparation towards career development and graduate programs.

Four minors are offered - mathematics, statistics, midde grades mathematics education, and actuarial science (probabilities). A minor in mathematics or statistics blended with another major strengthens employment opportunities as well as candidacy for graduate school. A grade of ‘C’ or better is required in each course to be applied toward a minor.
