The bachelor’s degree program in Mathematics offers two areas of concentration: mathematics and statistics. Each option affords students excellent preparation for a career in a mathematically-related field or graduate study while allowing them to tailor the educational experience to fit personal and professional interests and needs. The Mathematics Program offers one of the lowest faculty-to-student ratios and the highest percentage of courses taught by full-time faculty of any program in the capital region. As a result, students in Mathematics courses at every level are well supported and maintain close contact with the program’s instructors, advisors, and mentors.

Student Organizations and Activities in the UDC Mathematics Program

Students in the math program at UDC have frequent opportunities to complement their learning inside the classroom with community-based learning initiatives. Students are invited to participate in summer programs sponsored by the department and special events such as Pi-Day; conduct mathematic supplemental lessons inside District of Columbia middle schools; provide tutoring to local middle school and high school students; complete mathematics projects for science fairs and competitions; and engage in and present research at local conferences.

Membership in the mathematics club is also available to the entire undergraduate community.  This active club creates an environment where students have informal access to faculty members and their peers, and offers important social and networking opportunities
