Our faculty include numerous fellows of the AMS and SIAM, working in research areas grouped into: 1. Algebra, Geometry, and Topology, 2. Analysis and Partial Differential Equations, and 3. Applied and Computational Mathematics, with much overlap spanning many subfields. We support over 70 graduate students through research and teaching assistantships, and our graduating undergraduate math majors have reached 140 per year. We run many exciting weekly seminars and colloquia.
We offer a wide variety of courses and degree options in mathematics at the undergraduate and graduate levels. From the curious freshman checking out our freshman seminars to the Ph.D. student pursuing a career in pure or applied math, we invite all interested students and researchers to explore our programs and come on over to Phillips Hall to meet us.
