Undergraduate Program Offerings:
The Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at University of Colorado Denver offers a Bachelor of Science (BS) in mathematics with the opportunity to emphasize in applied mathematics, mathematics education, probability and statistics, or actuarial science.
All undergraduate students (including those in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the College of Business and Administration) with a major other than mathematics may earn a minor in mathematics.
There is a growing need for qualified statistical analysts of the ever-increasing amounts of data collected in business, industry, and government. The Certificates in Applied Statistics program is designed to give students a strong background in statistical methodology and data analysis in preparation for opportunities in the work force or for graduate studies.
This certificate provides students with essential skills for introductory data science. These include programming in a language popular in data science (e.g., Python, R, Julia); ability to extract, manipulate, and visualize data; have an understanding of probability and statistics in order to quantify uncertainty; be able to build complex models for finding patterns and explaining data. Additional training related to database management, high-performance computing, and modeling would likely be necessary for advanced data science analysis.
A solid training in the mathematical and statistical sciences is fundamental to optimally prepare economics students for graduate school. A dual degree in economics and mathematics will substantially increase program quality and career prospects for our students as well as enhancing increase the reputation of the economics program at University of Colorado Denver. Similarly, a solid training in quantitative and qualitative economic principles offers significant benefits to mathematics majors who seek industrial and/or consulting positions.
