Mathematics

The Mathematics Department at Brown balances a lively interest in students and teaching with a distinguished research reputation. Our several strong research groups, Analysis, Algebraic Geometry, Geometry and Topology, and Number Theory, all have active weekly seminars that draw speakers ranging from the local to the international. We support 30 to 40 graduate students in a Ph.D. program whose graduates populate top mathematics departments and prominent positions in industry. Our joint graduate courses and seminars with the adjacent Division of Applied Mathematics add to the breadth of offerings available to our graduate students.

The undergraduate program in mathematics at Brown is designed to prepare students for careers in the mathematical sciences and other careers requiring strong analytical skills, while engaging more ambitious students in creative projects that can culminate in a senior thesis. Two active undergraduate groups, known by their acronyms D.U.G. and W.I.S.E., sponsor a variety of events of interest to the undergraduate and graduate community and maintain healthy interaction across levels within the department.
