The mathematics program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point prepares students to solve problems in medicine, economics, management, geography, chemistry, engineering, physics and computer science. After taking three semesters of calculus and one semester of linear algebra, students complete the program by choosing either the mathematics major, which allows the flexibility to specialize or acquire a broad background, or the mathematics major with an actuarial emphasis.
Explore Career Opportunities in Mathematics
A Bachelor of Science degree in mathematical sciences prepares students for jobs in statistics, logistics, actuarial science, mathematical modeling and education. UW-Stevens Point mathematics graduates enjoy careers in varied industries including insurance, banking, financial services, government, education, software publishing, consulting, e-commerce, health care and law.
Get Involved on Campus
promotes an appreciation for mathematics and emphasizes its breadth and applications. The club provides opportunities to interact with mathematics and mathematicians, both professional and amateur, through conference trips, guest speakers, competitions and social events.
The Center for Athletic Scheduling
is a self-supporting, non-profit, student-run organization whose mission is to provide athletic schedules to intercollegiate athletic conferences across the country.
Gain Experience Outside the Classroom
The National Science Foundation funds many research opportunities for undergraduates through its Research Experiences for Undergraduates
Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of 10 or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers.
Meet Your Mathematics Professors
The mathematics program at UW-Stevens Point is large enough to offer a full range of courses, yet small enough to give you a chance to work directly with professors. We are also noted for our work with technology. The Department of Mathematical Sciences has about 20 faculty members. They have interests in topology, geometry, actuarial mathematics, probability and statistics, mathematics education and operations research. Meet your professors!
