The Science of Numbers

Mathematics and its applications play a fundamental role in any area of human activity, from purely scientific enterprises to the financial and business world. Our mission is to conduct and disseminate research, provide outstanding instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels in all areas of mathematics, and engage with the broader scientific community and public at large.

Degrees Offered

A degree in math gives a student a wide range of career options. For many students and employers, mathematics has become recognized as the most versatile of all undergraduate college majors.

Undergraduate Degrees

If you enjoy math, science and engineering, and if you tend to be drawn to the mathematical aspects of these subjects, then it could be that becoming a math major is exactly the right academic path for you. A challenging mathematics education develops problem solving abilities, and teaches versatility and adaptability. Because of these qualities, many career opportunities are available for mathematics majors.

Graduate Degrees

Our Graduate Program prepares students to pursue successful careers as professional mathematicians. Students in the program are rigorously trained for a wide range of career directions which include academia, industry, government labs and the financial sector. Program requirements are based upon the premise that graduate students should have a broad exposure to graduate level mathematics combined with hands-on experience, either through research activities conducted within the department or through coordinated experiences with other departments and other partners in industry, government labs and national research institutes. The overall principle in the program is to foster independent and creative work combined with the highest degree of scholarship and academic standards.
