Programs of Study

The Department of Mathematics at UCCS offers a wide range of courses, degrees, and programs to meet the needs of a diverse constituency in the Pikes Peak Region. The degree programs include:

Excel Mathematics Center

The Excel Mathematics Center is located in the Engineering building, room 233. The center began operation in the fall of 1990 as part of a federally funded Title III initiative known as Project Excel. The Math Center provides drop-in tutoring in mathematics, computer science, physics, statistics, and some engineering courses. In addition, the center provides Peer-Assisted Study sessions, problem sessions, workshops, and space for small group study. The computers in the Math Center have a variety of mathematical and statistical software for student use. See the website for more information: http://www.uccs.edu/~mathcenter/.
