The mission of the Department of Mathematics is to teach and do research in the mathematical sciences. We aim to be a department which is both intensely research-active and student-centered. This is to be done in an environment that fosters close working relationships among undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty.
The Mathematics Department at Tulane University offers a Ph.D. degree in Mathematics as well as Master of Science degrees in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics and in Statistics. Senior Undergraduate students majoring in mathematics or other sciences with a strong interest in mathematics, and people who already hold undergraduate degrees in mathematics or other sciences, are encouraged to apply for admission to any one of the graduate programs.
