News (5/11/2023): Congratulations to 2023 math undergraduate and graduate honorees! 

Mathematics is the science of structure, order, and relation whose origins stretch back to the very foundation of human activity. It is the universal language of the physical sciences and plays an increasingly important role in quantitative aspects of the life and social sciences. Statistics is the science of collecting, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting empirical data. Mathematics and statistics are highly interdisciplinary fields that sit beneath many recent breakthroughs in computing, communication, and medicine.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is home to world-class faculty who conduct cutting-edge research in diverse areas of mathematics and statistics, including Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Dynamical Systems, Geometry, Probability, Data Analysis, and Computational Statistics. They have received prestigious awards and multi-million dollar research grants from federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy. They are recognized internationally as leading experts in their fields.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers undergraduategraduate, and accelerated degree programs that prepare students for professional careers as well as further studies in mathematics, statistics, computer science, and other related fields. The department also collaborates with the Teacher Preparation Program to offer an accelerated Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics-Teaching Option and Master of Arts in Teaching program which enables students to obtain New Jersey instructional certificates in five years.
