Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
St. Cloud State is implementing a major academic reorganization that reshapes how students are prepared for life, work and citizenship in the 21st century. The stcloudstate.edu website is changing to reflect a new academic framework that focuses on active and applied learning, community engagement, sustainability, and global and cultural learning.
As part of the reorganization, the Mathematics and Statistics programs have combined into a single department. Mathematics and statistics are fundamental to many areas of study and are an integral part of a university education. The department offers curriculum designed not only to enable students to pursue careers in mathematics or statistics, but also to better prepare students for careers in business, education, engineering, and the physical, life and social sciences. To participate in a technological society and a competitive global environment, graduates need a strong foundation in analytical thinking, data analysis, problem solving, and modeling. These essential skills are developed and honed in mathematics and statistics coursework.
