Mathematics and Statistics

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at UNK offers undergraduate degree programs in Mathematics and Mathematics Education. Additionally, we offer online graduate courses for the Science/Math Education Master of Science in Education Degree. Our education majors enjoy good employment opportunities and our non-education majors have found interesting careers in computer programming, actuarial science, financial services, and administration.

The department has an active chapter of the national mathematics honorary Kappa Mu Epsilon. Dr. Kime is the faculty adviser. Additionally, the department sponsors a Math Club that is open to all UNK students. The Club has hosted Pi Day activities and has organized events in public schools. Dr. Ford and Ms. Sorensen are the faculty advisers. 

Dr. Ford is the organizer for The Central Nebraska Math Teachers' Circle . The Teaching Circle is an opportunity for middle school teachers and mathematics educators to build relationships with other teachers and mathematicians and to gain new mathematical knowledge.

Though the generous fininacial support of former students and faculty, the department has several Continuing Student Scholarships for our majors. Mathematics majors can apply each Feburary by loging into MyBlue.
