Student Clubs and Outreach
Mathematical Sciences houses two lively student-based organizations that are actively involved in numerous community-oriented activities - the student chapter of SIAM, Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), 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, by using their University ID. Using their ID may also give them access to the math study area in SCEN 350 and the department's computer lab.
The Arkansas Women in Statistics and Mathematics (AWSM) is a University 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: https://hogsync.uark.edu/organization/arkansas-women-in-statistics-and-mathematics
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.

The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is a faculty-led chapter with Tulin Kaman. Details and meeting times are posted on https://kaman.uark.edu/siam/
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) is a student chapter established to promote
- an increased knowledge of and greater interest in the mathematical sciences, including pure and applied mathematics, statistics, and their applications;
- a greater understanding of the contributions of women in the mathematical sciences; and
- mentoring and encouraging women and girls as they prepare for careers in the mathematical sciences.

National Science Foundation Undergraduate Research Experience (REU) Programs
The National Science Foundation has partnered with schools across the US to provide career and learning experiences for undergraduates in their fields of interest. For more information, for more information, visit the link below:NSF REU Program List
Penn State MASS Program
The Mathematics Advanced Study Semesters (MASS) program, offered by Penn State, combines advanced learning with research initiation and provides a highly charged interactive environment among a critical mass of talented and motivated students and a committed group of strong research faculty and top graduate students. For most of its participants, the MASS program serves as a spring board to graduate schools in mathematics.MASS Program Information
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.
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/).
