Mathematics Program

The Mathematics Program was established in 1976 to offer Bachelor of Science (Mathematics) which the courses, included General Education, were similar to that of the BS Mathematics curriculum of UP-CAS of the Diliman campus. It was under the Natural Sciences and Mathematics Division (NSMD) of the University of the Philippines Visayas Cebu College. The elevation of the University of the Philippines Cebu as a constituent unit of the University of the Philippines made the Mathematics Program Office as one of the three units in the College of Science (CS), the largest college in UP Cebu, and mandated to deliver the mathematics and statistics core and service courses offered in the university. Since its inception, the office has produced graduates who possess extensive and well-rounded education and training in mathematics.
