At PSU Math, student success is our highest priority.
We are devoted to helping you succeed in college and begin your career. PSU Math delivers high impact education. Math is an ancient and evolving field, and thus covering math content alone is not enough. We help you learn how to learn and how to question the world around you. We employ modern teaching practices and create many opportunities for exploration and collaboration.
Opportunities and support for math majors include:
- A Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics or Mathematical Data Science.
- Student teaching and professional development through the Holmes Center.
Mathematical Data Sciences is an interdisciplinary mathematics program that emphasizes computer science, experimentation, and data collection. Mathematics provides students with methods and theory that live at the heart of problem solving and data analysis in the physical sciences, engineering, and innovative industries. Combining mathematics with computer science gives students the practical skills necessary to employ their theoretical mathematics knowledge and develop algorithms to address problems in the real world. Students in Mathematical Data Sciences will also complete 16 to 23 credits in an enrichment option of their choice. The enrichment option gives students experience in a particular field where mathematics and computer science can be applied, and the background to properly implement their skills.
