Department of Mathematics

In this Section

The Department of Mathematics has ten full-time tenure-track faculty and several adjunct faculty members. The department offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees: a bachelor of science degree in Mathematics or in Applied Mathematics and Statistics; a master of science degree in Mathematics; and a Ph.D. in Mathematics. The bachelor of science degree in Digital Arts and Sciences is conducted in conjunction with Clarkson's Department of Communication and Media.

We also offer interdisciplinary minors in Computational Science and Engineering (both undergraduate and graduate), and Statistics. The Mathematics minor is the most popular in the University with more than 15 percent of recent graduates qualifying for it.

The emphasis of our degree programs and our research activities is in different aspects of applied mathematics, especially, computational applied mathematics, dynamical systems, and applied probability and statistics.

Almost all our faculty participate in programs that generate original research papers and receive funding from federal, state or private sources. Educational outreach partnerships with local school districts and their students are other important mathematics department programs.
