Mathematics and Statistics

Benjamin Finkel (1865–1947), founder of the American Mathematical Monthly journal, ONU graduateThe Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Ohio Northern University will be recognized regionally and nationally for the premier undergraduate experience provided to students by a faculty committed to excellence in teaching, maintaining active research programs that stimulate undergraduate research, and engaged  in outreach and service to profession, institution and community. A wide range of opportunities in academia and beyond are available for the students completing our  mathematical statistics major.

In the last seven years, our students gave more than 80 presentations at regional or national mathematics meetings and co-authored ten mathematics or statistics-related refereed publications. Among the graduate schools which accepted our students we can include Ohio State University, Purdue University, University of Florida, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina.


We offer majors, leading to either the B.A. degree or the B.S. degree, in mathematics (with either the advanced mathematical studies, or teacher licensure concentrations), applied mathematics and statistics (with either the applied statistics and actuarial science concentrations) as well as minors in mathematics, applied mathematics and applied statistics. Our secondary education program in mathematics is nationally accredited by the NCTM.

An ONU graduate (B.S. in 1888 under what was then called the Scientific Course), Finkel was the founder (in 1894) of The American Mathematical Monthly, which was instrumental in establishing the Mathematical Association of America in Columbus (1915).
