Mathematics

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at Kutztown University

Are you good at math? Do you like solving problems and puzzles? Do you like working through things logically? Do statistics fascinate you? Do you enjoy working with calculators and computers? Do you get satisfaction out of helping others with math problems? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then perhaps a career in mathematics is for you!

At Kutztown University, we can prepare you to be a pure mathematician, an applied mathematician, a statistician, an actuary, or a secondary mathematics teacher, among other careers.

Our graduates are working for major corporations throughout the world. Others are attending graduate school for advanced degrees. If you went to school in the Lehigh Valley or Berks County, chances are that several of your math teachers are among our graduates.

We offer two different undergraduate degrees in mathematics: a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education with Certification in Mathematics. We also offer a Minor in Mathematics. Additionally, for in-service teachers we offer a Master of Science in Secondary Education with Specialization in Mathematics.

In addition to providing courses for our own majors, we also teach courses to nearly every student at the university through our General Education offerings and "service" courses to students majoring in the sciences, business, and elementary education, for example.

Because of the importance of mathematics in an ever-increasingly complex and technological world, the Department of Mathematics at Kutztown University strives to be a positive influence not only for our students but for the community at large as well. Read our complete Mission Statement.
