Brandeis University's Department of Mathematics combines the informality and flexibility of a small department with the intellectual vigor of a faculty whose research accomplishments have placed it among the top departments in the country. The result is an active dialogue among all members of the department and a general air of living, creative mathematics. Our coursework gives students a broad foundation in modern pure mathematics. An essential part of the program consists of seminars on a variety of topics of current interest in which mathematicians from greater Boston often participate. In addition, the Brandeis-Harvard-MIT-Northeastern Mathematics Colloquium gives the student an opportunity to hear the current work of eminent mathematicians from all over the world.
Our faculty are not only outstanding academics, they are also dedicated teachers and mentors. Especially in advanced-level courses, you'll often find them in the audience while a student lectures. By fostering dialogue among all members of the department, we aim to bring mathematics to life. You will find our strengths in algebra, analysis, topology, number theory, combinatorics, and applied mathematics.
