Through unique undergraduate research experiences, our students have the chance to take their learning beyond the classroom – solving real-world problems.
Working side-by-side with professors, you’ll build your resume, develop practical skills that set you apart from the crowd, and have the chance to publish your work for the world to see.
Our department conducts research in the following areas: algebra, analysis, approximation theory, conformal geometry, cognition as it relates to teaching mathematics, culture and race in mathematics teaching, issues in rural mathematics education, functional analysis, number theory, probability, topology and more.
Research for credit
During spring and fall semesters, research projects can be taken as MATH 4990 for credit toward your major.
In summers, our department supports students through the Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP). The program provides a generous stipend for 8 weeks of research under the direction of a faculty member.
