Mathematical and Computer Sciences Building

Welcome to Department of Mathematical Sciences!

Our department offers a wide variety of courses and degree options in mathematics and applied mathematics at the Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D. levels. Our Ph.D. program is one of six mathematics Ph.D. programs in the state public university system, and one of only two in northeast Ohio.

The pure mathematics major is very flexible in order to meet your individual needs and interests. The applied mathematics major allows for a concentration in classical applied mathematics, computational mathematics, probability and statistics, or financial mathematics. Our programs can prepare you for employment in industry, government, education, and prepare you for graduate study.

The faculty areas of research lie in functional analysis and operator theory, finite groups, character theory, number theory, numerical analysis, applied mathematics, and probability and stochastic processes.
