Department Description

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers coursework leading to the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in Mathematics. At the graduate level, the department offers a Master of Science degree in Mathematics and a Master of Science degree in Statistics, and participates in the UMKC School of Graduate Studies Interdisciplinary Ph.D. program. Qualified students can select Mathematics as the coordinating unit or a co-discipline when applying for admission or preparing their plans of study. See the School of Graduate Studies section in the Graduate Catalog for more information about the Ph.D. program.

These programs are designed to develop the student's own knowledge of mathematics or statistics, and to provide the tools and understanding necessary for the study of other scientific and quantitative fields.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics has an institutional membership in the American Mathematical Society.

Advising System

Advising is on an individual basis with senior mathematics faculty members. Appointments for advising may be made by contacting the department, the undergraduate advisor, the principal graduate advisor, or the interdisciplinary Ph.D. coordinator.

Library Resources

In addition to UMKC's Miller Nichols Library, the department has full access to the holdings and services of the Linda Hall Library of Science and Technology, a privately endowed institution of international prominence. The Linda Hall Library subscribes to more than 700 mathematics journals and maintains a large and growing collection of mathematics books.
