About the Department
The language of mathematics is logical reasoning; its fundamental mode of discourse is creating and explaining proofs. Mathematics is an indispensable tool in the physical sciences, engineering and commerce, and central to the social sciences and humanities. Mathematicians value clarity and originality of argument and the capacity to resolve challenging questions which originate either in applications or within mathematics itself. Above all, mathematicians esteem the ability to formulate and apply insights that open new vistas. Mathematics, like poetry or sculpture, values elegance and beauty.
Our department is a community of scholars, committed to excellence in research across a variety of disciplinary areas and to effective and flexible undergraduate and graduate instruction. Our faculty is internationally acclaimed. Our graduate students continue in leading postdoctoral positions both in the US and abroad. Our undergraduate major and minor can stand alone or complement the interests of students in many disciplines.
