    Welcome to the Department of Mathematics & Statistics

    The Department of Mathematics & Statistics has a diverse group of faculty, representing areas of core and applied mathematics, mathematics education, and statistics. We encourage and welcome all students who share our interests in the mathematical sciences to pursue a major or minor program of study. Our mission is twofold: to prepare students for a variety of exciting and rewarding career opportunities in business, industry, government and the teaching professions; and to advance forefront knowledge in the areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, and mathematics education through world-class cutting-edge research.

  • Statistics


    The department offers a Bachelor, a Graduate Certificate, a Master and a Ph.D. program in Statistics. The Bachelor of Statistics prepares students for careers as analysts and data scientists in a variety of industries as well as in government. The program also provides extensive statistics background needed for an actuary career. The Master of Statistics serves both, as a professional degree for upper-level data science positions in industry and government, as well as a preparation for entry in statistics Ph.D. programs. There is the option of enrolling in a 5-year accelerated Bachelor-Master program. The class sizes in these programs typically are small and hands-on data analysis using statistical software is an integral part in most courses

Master of Science for Teachers (MST) Master of Science for Teachers (MST)

The Master of Science for Teachers is a graduate degree program in mathematics designed primarily for secondary mathematics teachers at the University of New Hampshire. The program is typically completed in two to three summers, and online course options are available.
It is also possible to take MST courses without enrolling in the MST degree program. This option is particularly popular with individuals who are interested in obtaining certification to teach secondary school mathematics, since MST courses have traditionally satisfied content area requirements in teacher certification programs. learn more...
