Areas

Actuarial MathematicsActuarial Mathematics
Actuarial mathematics is the study of risk and uncertainty in a financial setting, and is useful in all areas of business. The actuarial mathematics courses at UNO are specifically designed to help students pass tests to become an actuary.

Industrial MathematicsIndustrial and Applied Mathematics
Industrial and Applied Mathematics is a broad term used to describe many areas of mathematics. In industrial and applied mathematics courses at UNO, students will study differential equations, mathematical modelling, numerical analysis, and optimization. The goal is to provide a breadth of training that will help students in many applied settings.

Pure MathematicsPure Mathematics
Mathematics underlies all areas of modern life. Carl Frederick Gauss referred to it as "The Queen of Sciences." No matter what your field is, students will find pure mathematics courses at UNO of interest.

StatisticsStatistics

Statistics looks at the collecting, analyzing, and explaining all types of data.
