The Department of Mathematics offers a PhD in Mathematics and MS degrees in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Applied Mathematics–Actuarial Sciences, and in the Teaching of Mathematics. Our faculty and students conduct research in a wide range of areas of pure and applied mathematics.
The Department consists of 68 full-time faculty members, 12 postdoctoral faculty and a number of visiting faculty. It is housed largely in Altgeld Hall, a beautiful stone Romanesque building in the heart of campus that contains one of the world's largest mathematics libraries. The 160 doctoral students and the faculty enjoy a lively schedule of about twenty-five research seminars and lectures each week, many seminars being given by graduate students. About half of the students are international students and about 30 percent of the students are women. There are excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration with the university's highly-ranked engineering and science departments.
