Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at the University of Denver. Our mission is to excel in conducting mathematical research and educating students within a supporting intellectual community.

We are active in several areas of pure mathematics, including algebraic logic, combinatorics, ergodic theory, functional analysis, graph theory, nonassociative algebra, noncommutative geometry, operator theory, probability, representation theory, set theory, statistical physics and topological dynamics.

We offer a full spectrum of math courses to prepare undergraduate students for graduate schools and careers in high tech industry, data science, finance, teaching and more. Our majors benefit from small class sizes, frequent interactions with professors, financial support for conference travel and access to extracurricular activities, including the Math Club. Students have the opportunity to earn distinction in major by completing a sequence of advanced courses and an independent research project.

Graduate students are supported by competitive teaching assistantships and endowed scholarships. Our program for teaching assistants is designed to prepare them for future jobs in academia by gradually increasing their responsibilities and independence as instructors. PhD candidates are immersed in research and exposed to cutting-edge mathematics. They attend and have opportunities to speak in weekly seminars, as well as international math conferences that we organize.

Please browse around to learn more about all of our offerings. We look forward to hearing from you.
