  • Benefits of an MSUM Mathematics Department Degree
    The majority of our classes are capped at 35 students, so you’ll get the individual attention you deserve as you delve into complicated aspects of the field.
    You’ll be encouraged to explore your mathematical interests outside of the classroom through research. By doing so, you’ll have the opportunity to prove previously unexplored theorems, and will receive the utmost support from your professors.
    Your faculty are here for you. They’re teaching your classes, advising student organizations, and collaborating on research with you. Because of small class sizes, you’ll develop more meaningful professional relationships with your professors, which will be a great help as you begin applying for jobs after graduation.
    Hear from alumni who’ve been in your shoes, attend conferences and career fairs, and participate in competitions with your peers. You’ll learn by getting involved with your community.
