Department of Mathematics and Physics

In every arena of human activity and endeavor, whether in specialty areas or in plain daily living, mathematics plays animportant and vital role in shaping and advancing civilization and the frontiers of science and technology. Mathematics is an abstract science and its abstractness finds application in the solution of numerous and diverse types of problems encountered in all branches of science, engineering, business, economics, etc., and in any problem that pertains to man and the universe. The existing affinity between mathematics and the physical world calls for better discernment of the environment in which we live. Classroom instruction is one of the media by which this could be accomplished. This is the basic reason for arranging a departmental programme which lays emphasis on the usefulness and the utilitarian aspect of mathematics. This programme could also provide an avenue for students to be exposed to new and more mathematical ideas to enhance their ability to analyze problems and to think critically and creatively. In addition, bearing in mind that God did create this world with mathematical precision, it is incumbent for this programme to encourage students to do their academic task with finesse and accuracy. And whatever knowledge and skills they can acquire can be oriented towards the development and further development of their mental, spiritual and physical powers.

Concentrations in applied mathematics, pure mathematics, applied statistics, and minor in mathematics, applied mathematics and physics are available. Depending upon the particular concentration, students are prepared for a career in industry, government, or education. The faculty includes specialists in applied mathematics, pure mathematics, mathematics education, physics and applied statistics. Classes for majors are moderate in size. Faculty members are very interested in the progress of their students and encourage them to seek their help outside of class.Employment opportunities in mathematics and physics are excellent with demand for graduates in all of the mathematical sciences expected to remain high. Appropriate mathematical and statistical software and technology are integrated throughout our curriculum. Social events include frequent student challenges to teach the faculty how to shoot pool, bowl, play ball, and yearn for younger days.Please contact us if you have questions about any of the information. We look forward to the opportunity to speak with you.
