Student Clubs & Outreach

Mathematical Sciences houses two lively student-based organizations that are actively involved in numerous community-oriented activities - the Arkansas Women in Statistics and Mathematics AWSM and the Math Club.

Math majors have access to the math library, full of hundreds of new, general interest books on a wide variety of mathematical topics.
 
For access to the Math Lounge SCEN 350, Math Majors can apply for an individual entrance-card. This card will also give access to the Computer Lab across the hall. Application forms can be found in SCEN 309.

The Arkansas Women in Statistics and Mathematics (AWSM) is a Univeristy student-based organization driven to  foster, encourage and promote the participation of women in the hard sciences at the University of Arkansas.

More information can be found on their website: http://www.uark.edu/rso/awsm/

The Math Club is a University student-based organization that works closely with the Department of Mathematical Sciences in event planning and host the occasional guest lecturer. Their events can also be found on our Google Calendar.

A chance to study abroad is a wonderful opportunity for academic and cultural enrichment. Requirements for the mathematics major are flexible so that students should be able to arrange a semester or year abroad during their undergraduate career. Students who are planning to go to graduate school will find that reading knowledge of a language, typically French, German, or Russian, is expected and a semester abroad is an excellent opportunity to develop facility with a language. 

There are two excellent international programs that specialize in mathematics. 

  1. The Budapest Semester in Mathematics

  2. The Math in Moscow program

Mathematics students with an interest in study abroad should meet with their mathematics adviser to learn more about opportunities. Students may find additional information at the office of study abroad and international exchange (studyabroad.uark.edu/).
