The Faculty offers programs leading toward bachelor, master and PhD degrees.
At bachelor level
In 2018 there are about 1000 students majoring in mathematics. Each year the Faculty admits around 250 new students. Among these students around 30 students are selected to join the Honor class, which receives separate instructions.
During the first three semesters a student is required to take mandatory courses, which provide fundamental background in Calculus, Analysis, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Computer Science and other general requirements. From the fourth semester the student should choose an area of concentration.
The program is credit-based, offering plenty of optional courses and many areas of concentrations. Many students choose the option of writing a senior thesis, thereby getting research experience.
Graduate of our programs went to diverse areas, in academic, research, teaching, industry, business, and government service.
