Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics supports the members of the Radford University community when they need to solve an important equation, model a complicated process or understand the story hidden in a large data set.

For those who want to focus their studies on mathematics or statistics, we offer Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Arts degrees with concentrations in Traditional Mathematics (with or without licensure to teach math in secondary schools), Applied Mathematics and Statistics. We also offer minors in Mathematics and Statistics. Learn more about our degrees »

We also support students in other disciplines who need to further develop the mathematical language needed to explain their respective fields of interest. Learn more about our courses »

We're proud of our graduates' success, and for good reason. The list below shows some of the job titles held in 2017 by Radford graduates with a bachelor's degree in math between 2005 and 2015. They work at many school districts in Virginia and at companies including Eastman Chemical, Roche Pharmaceuticals, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Shenandoah Life, New York Life and Booz Allen Hamilton. One is a lecturer at Ohio State University; one is a singer; one is an artist; one is a pastor; one is a sportscaster! As you can see, our graduates tend to find satisfying, well-paying jobs in many areas, including some which do not use advanced mathematics.
