Welcome Page - Mathematics and Statistics - Ohio Northern University
We offer majors in mathematics and mathematics/statistics, as well as minors in mathematics, applied mathematics and applied statistics. Our majors may choose a general education program leading to either the B.A. degree or the B.S. degree. The Mathematics and Statistics Department cooperates with the Center for Teacher Education in program planning for licensure for those desiring to teach at the secondary school level. Our secondary education program in mathematics is nationally accredited by the NCTM. Some of our students choose to continue their education in graduate school. In the last seven years, our students gave 61 presentations at regional or national mathematics meetings and co-authored seven mathematics or statistics-related refereed publications. Among the graduate schools which accepted our students we can include Ohio State University, Purdue University, University of Florida and the University of North Carolina. Also, a wide range of opportunities in academia and beyond are available for the students completing our mathematics/statistics track.
