The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a broad integrated programme of studies in Mathematical disciplines.
The first two years of the structured programme afford each student the maximum opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes that will best motivate and equip him/her to choose the field of endeavor most appropriate to his or her talents. Basic Mathematics knowledge and skills are emphasized at that level. In the last two years each student concentrates on one of the five areas: Mathematics, Statistics, Mathematics/Statistics, Mathematics/Computer Science, and Statistics/Computer Science.
The programmes are designed to equip graduates for a wide variety of careers in the Mathematical disciplines. The main objectives are as follows:
(i) To solve the manpower needs of the immediate environment in particular and the nation in general as regards the disciplines of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science.
(ii) To prepare students for employment in establishment and industries and for research and graduate studies in these disciplines.
The applicability of these disciplines in the modern industrial environment is highly emphasized. As industries nowadays depend heavily on the use of computers for aspects of their day-to-day operations, the Mathematics and Statistics programme is tailored to developing computing skills that will enable the graduates to fit into the modern industrial environment. The Mathematics/Statistics programmes, as well as stressing traditional methods, also incorporates new computer-based techniques and popular statistical softwares. Consequently Student Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) is emphasized for students in the department.
The curriculum for the BSc. Degree programmes in the Department consists of two sections namely the introductory and the advanced sections. The introductory section consists of foundation courses which are taken by all the students of the department and it extends over the first four semester of the four-year degree programme. The foundations courses seek to provide a strong grounding in Mathematics and basic sciences.
The advanced part of the degree programme commences from the first semester of year three. The department offers five streams of courses and students can choose any of them. The following are the programmes:

(i) Mathematics (Pure and Applied)
(ii) Statistics
(iii) Mathematics/Statistics
(iv) Mathematics/Computer Science
(v) Statistics/Computer Science

Departmental Entry Requirements
The minimum requirement for entry into a Bachelor Degree program in the Department is the SSSC or WASC or GCE O/L or the equivalent with credits (in at most two sittings) in English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and one other subject, depending on the sub-programme of study. Candidates for B.Sc. Mathematics, Statistics Mathematics/Statistics, Statistics and Computer programmes require credit in Biology or Economics or Geography while candidates for B.Sc. Mathematics/Computer Science programmes require credit in Biology. Attention of each student is drawn to the document “Statement of Academic Polices” of the University of Port Harcourt general entry requirements.
Eligibility to Graduate
Students are eligible to graduate upon completion of the prescribed courses for the relevant programme including Research project, with a minimum Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) OF 1.50.  Computations of CGPA as well as other matters relating to students status and eligibility to graduate can be obtained from Statement of Academic Policies of the University of Port Harcourt.
Withdrawal and Academic Probation
A student whose CGPA falls below 1.00 at the end of an academic year will be placed on probation in the subsequent year and will be restricted to carry credit load of 15 to 18units. A student will be required to withdraw from a programme if the CGPA is below an approved minimum of 1.00 after a period of probation.
Auditing of Courses
Students may take courses outside their proscribed programmes. The courses shall be recorded in their transcripts. However audited courses shall not be used in calculating the CGPA.
Academic Advisers
Every student is attached to an Academic Adviser who is a member of the academic staff of the department and who will advise him/her on academic affairs as well as on personal matter where necessary. Academic Advises are expected to follow their students’ academic progresses and provide counseling to them. It is the duty of the Head of Department to assign an Academic Adviser to each student at the beginning of each academic session.
