Welcome to the Department of Mathematical Sciences!
The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers a wide range of technical and research degrees and is a recognized leader of research in the mathematical sciences. Much of the research is conducted in a collaboration with various science departments, university centers, and collaborators worldwide. The department conducts research in both pure and applied mathematics with emphases in dynamical systems theory, mathematical biology and applied and computational mathematics. Collaborative research also involves engineering and the biological sciences. Statistics research encompasses a broad range of theoretical and applied topics with several interdisciplinary opportunities including the environmental and ecological sciences.
Mathematics education research takes an applied approach, addressing issues that surround mathematics teaching and learning with a focus on the development and ongoing support of K-12 mathematics teachers. Active research venues include content course and field experiences for pre-service teachers, student and teachers in K-12 classrooms, professional development for in-service teachers and online learning environments. The department provides unique opportunities for innovative instruction and cooperative research. With more than 25 Ph.D. faculty and around 125 graduate students, the department is large enough to support a robust and research-active faculty, but small enough to allow faculty and graduate students and intimate atmosphere for the easy exchange of ideas. We are a community of scholars who aim to empower human beings to think quantitatively and generate new knowledge in the mathematical sciences.
