The department of mathematical sciences offers a complete range of programs from the bachelor's to the doctoral level.
Our undergraduate program offers tracks in applied mathematics, statistics and pure mathematics as well as a track designed especially for future high school teachers. Our programs for majors from other colleges and departments (mathematics as a second major and the mathematics minor) have shown dramatic growth in recent years reflecting the increased need for a strong mathematical background in subjects such as computer and biomedical engineering.
The masters in arts for teachers of mathematics is one of the country's premier master's degree programs for in-service teachers. A rotating cohort of 30 teachers spend three summers studying a wide variety of topics in mathematics designed to complement the subject matter taught in high school. First established in the 1960's the program now has more than 200 graduates, many of whom still teach in Greater Cincinnati high schools.
Our masters in science program prepares students for a variety of career paths. The largest component of this program is a concentration in applied statistics. This highly successful program with an enrolment of over 40 has placed students in statistical positions at many of Cincinnati's major employers such as the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, ACNielsen Bases, and the Environmental Protection Agency. The track in mathematics prepares students for further study at the doctoral level as well as careers in education and business.
The doctoral program in mathematics and statistics is one of the oldest in Ohio, with the first degree awarded back in 1912. Graduates of our program have moved on to faculty positions in universities all over the world, as well as to jobs as applied mathematicians and statisticians in both the public and private sector.
Our faculty pride themselves equally on their research and their dedication to teaching. They publish regularly in major research journals and have written books ranging from calculus texts to advanced research monographs. Our expertise encompasses a broad range of subjects from traditional pure mathematical specialties such as algebra, analysis and geometry to cutting edge applications in cryptography, finance and neuroscience.
