The mission of the College of Mathematics and Science is to help students learn by providing transformative education experiences to students so that they may become productive, creative, ethical and engaged citizens and leaders serving our global community.

Helping Students Learn.

The faculty and staff in the College of Mathematics and Science strive to provide students with an exceptional educational experience. Here you will find comparatively small classes taught by faculty who know you and care about your educational and professional success.

Reshaping Your World. Transforming Your Future.

Today's competitive, rapidly changing world requires depth and agility in the workplace. To prepare students to meet these challenges, UCO and the College of Mathematics and Science provides students with opportunities for life-changing intellectual experiences that take place both inside and beyond the classroom. We call this "Transformative Learning."

Transformative Learning is a holistic process that places students at the center of their own active and reflective learning experiences.

The University of Central Oklahoma is the leadership university, delivering education based on our shared values of Community, Character and Civility. UCO transforms each student by focusing our resources on the Central Six tenets of transformative learning:

Discipline and Knowledge
Research, Scholarly, and Creative Activities
Service Learning and Civic Engagement Activities
Global and Cultural Competencies
Health and Wellness


 STEM building opening

Donald Betz STEM Research and Learning Center now open!

With the high demand for STEM graduates and steadily increasing enrollment in the fields of math and science, Howell Hall is bursting at the seams with both students and ideas. STEM has become the force driving innovation for our future and UCO is ready to provide graduates with the knowledge and skills to both meet and serve this need. The 57,000 square foot interdisciplinary STEM Research and Learning Center houses state-of-the-art research labs, several classrooms, and faculty office space. Most importantly it is the permanent home for the Center for Interdisciplinary Biomedical Education and Research (CIBER), the Center for Research and Education in Interdisciplinary Computation (CREIC), and additional research laboratories for forensic science and applied mathematics. Additionally, the building houses teaching laboratories in forensic science, cell and developmental biology, genetics, biomedical engineering, and nursing simulation as well as transformative learning classrooms. Faculty and students from different departments will work side by side in these research and teaching laboratories.
