The department has a remarkable history of research in both pure mathematics and in
the practical applications of math in the fields of science and industry. Our program
hones students' analytical abilities, preparing them to thrive in the expanding knowledge-based
economy, whether they choose to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree.
Our undergraduate program teaches you to cultivate highly valuable expertise, such as the ability to rationally
assess scenarios, break down large problems into manageable pieces, and devise and
execute troubleshooting tactics that encompass a vast spectrum of concepts and data.
graduate program offers ample prospects for you to further stimulate your mathematical abilities, propelling
you into a fulfilling career in research. Our faculty's research topics span the gamut
from machine learning and data science, to analytic number theory and combinatorics
The graduate program offers a PhD and several Master’s degrees; Master of Arts, Master
of Science, and a Master of Mathematics, as well as a Master of Arts in Teaching, in collaboration with the College of Education.
