Mathematics is a vibrant and ever-evolving part of modern science. Though it has been a part of human history since time immemorial, most of what we recognize as mathematics today was discovered (or invented, depending on your point of view) only relatively recently. For example, Calculus has only existed as a unified subject since about 1665. And much of the rest of the material in the curriculum of the modern mathematics major was only developed within the last 200 years or so. New mathematics continues to be discovered at an ever-increasing rate.
The faculty in the Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to pushing the boundaries of what is known in Mathematics and Statistics. Our faculty pursue original research in many different areas of Mathematics and Statistics, including research with undergraduate and graduate students. We also host multiple seminar and colloquia, in which faculty and students can keep abreast of the latest developments in their fields.
