AboutMathematical Sciences majors at IUPUI are serious…and seriously excited about mathematical science.
Students here reap the benefits of small classes, an interactive learning environment and challenging material. As early as their freshman year, our undergraduates are able to participate in real research with renowned faculty.
We're a community of learners and students thrive here. Students support each other through peer-lead mentoring, providing a unique environment where students become leaders by teaching others. Mathematical Sciences club, the Math Assistance Center, and intramural sports are just a few of the opportunities for students to get involved outside of the classroom.
We're great mathematicians, but more importantly, we're innovative teachers. As a department, and a university, we've developed teaching methods that engage and encourage students--and are used at universities throughout the United States. Simply put, we care about our students.
Lastly, we're one of seven departments in the School of Science, situated in the heart of Indianapolis, near five hospitals, the Indiana University schools of medicine, dentistry and nursing, and countless science and technology companies. Through internships and undergrad research, our students have opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, across campus, and across the academic and business communities. Our graduates emerge as well-rounded scientists whose experiences have prepared them to solve the problems of the future.
The vision of the Department of Mathematical Sciences is to maintain and enhance excellence in mathematical and statistical research through national and international collaboration and participation, and to serve the people of Indiana and beyond by providing the highest quality undergraduate and graduate education in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematics education and statistics.
The Department of Mathematical Sciences engages in the discovery and dissemination of mathematical knowledge at all levels--professional, graduate, and undergraduate. The Department conducts fundamental research in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics. Publications in peer-reviewed journals and participation in conferences, colloquia and seminars are the hallmarks of the Department's scientific activities. The Department ensures student success through classical as well as innovative classroom techniques, engaging learning opportunities, one-on-one guidance, and a variety of supportive programs such as tutoring and peer mentoring. The Department also provides significant research collaboration and statistical consultation to academic, government, and industrial units throughout the community.
Creative research, outstanding teaching, and the steadfast pursuit of academic and professional excellence will bring our vision to fruition and will earn us local and global recognition as a leading department of mathematical sciences.
