The Mathematics Department at Alabama A&M University seeks to attract at least five highly qualified students per year into mathematics or computer science. Through the support of a five-year grant that was funded by the United States Office of Naval Research in 1998, the Mathematics Department now offers a scholarship program for freshmen students who wish to combine their study of mathematics and/or computer science with a minor in statistics. The minor requires 18 hours of specified statistics courses in regression, experimental design, mathematical statistics and a junior or senior project course which results in a well-written statistics research paper.
The curriculum that has been designed for scholarship participants requires entering freshmen to take elementary statistics and at least one statistics course in each succeeding semester until 18 statistics hours have been completed. The program also requires participation in at least one away-from-campus internship program.
This talk will present a more detailed description of the recruitment process, curriculum, undergraduate research, internship and efforts to place students into graduate programs.
