Message from the Chair

On behalf of my colleagues, I'd like to welcome you to the Department of Mathematics at the Halmos College of Arts and Sciences.

The Department of Mathematics is committed to excellence in teaching, innovative research, and providing a student-centered program. The Mathematics faculty work closely with students to create an engaging and exciting learning environment. Beyond the classroom, students can participate in programs and events designed to promote and showcase mathematics within the academic discipline.

The college's Bachelor of Science in Mathematics program provides the mathematical skills required to solve problems within the field of mathematics and other related disciplines. The curriculum in this program provides a “core” background of pure and applied mathematics courses. This program will give students foster analytical, abstract, and critical thinking skills necessary to either enter a graduate program or pursue a career in education, science, industry, or business.

I wish you the best in your academic career here at the college, and my colleagues and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
