The Department of Mathematics offers a selective and focused program of study leading to a Doctor of Philosophy in Computational Science with concentration in
- Computational and Applied Mathematics
The doctoral concentration is integrated with the SimCenter, a research center that serves as a hub in modeling, simulation, and high-performance computing. In addition, the department has a Master of Science in Mathematics with concentrations in
- Applied Mathematics
- Applied Statistics
- Pre-Professional Mathematics
Each Master's student works closely with a faculty advisor in writing a research paper or thesis in an area of interest to the student. At the doctoral level, a student may specialize in any one of a large number of fields and conduct interdisciplinary research.
