Mathematical Sciences
Where Numbers Meet Innovation
Welcome
The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers undergraduate degrees in actuarial sciences, applied mathematics, mathematics, mathematics & data science, mathematics and economics, and secondary math education. We offer graduate programs in mathematics and applied mathematics.
Why UD MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES?
Our faculty do cuttingedge research, publishing over 100 papers per year in refereed journals and conference proceedings.
 The department is helping to train the next generation of mathematicians, awarding approximately eight doctoral degrees, 12 master's degrees, and 65 bachelor's degrees each year.
 Most of our graduate students are funded as teaching assistants, and we are constantly improving the training we provide on how to teach effectively. Students aiming for academic careers have the opportunity to serve as instructor of record.
Nearly 100%
The placement rate for nearly 100% of our graduates as future teachers of mathematics.
Top 12
According to a recent New York Federal Reserve study, mathematics is one of the top 12 highestpaying college majors, five years after graduation.
31% growth in careers
Employment of mathematicians is projected to grow 31 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations.
