The Mathematics Department provides an in-depth education in a broad range of topics. Whether you want to open the minds of future students, assess risk for business, harness the power of computer to solve complex math problems, or dive deep into the theoretical underpinnings of mathematics, MSUM is the place for you. Within the department there is a great sense of discovery and collaboration as students and faculty are active in research, journal publication, conference presentations, and mathematics competitions. Many students and faculty have received distinguished awards and recognition.
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.
