Research and Teaching Seminars
Seven to ten graduate seminars are offered each semester, giving students and faculty the opportunity to speak, discuss and do research on current professional topics in formal and informal settings. These are considered an integral part of a student's education.
Our colloquium series brings together outside speakers and the campus professional community in mathematics and other sciences. Graduate students are encouraged to attend and participate.

Grant Supported Research
Our faculty and students are also involved in a number of grant supported research projects funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy, the USDA Forest Service, the NASA, the National Security Agency, and others. The Show-Me Project was funded to work with teachers in the professional development phase of the STEM project through the year 2002. ShowMe Phase II was recently funded through 2007. Large infrastructure grants across the university support student research and training in the department, namely the Montana-Ecology of Infectious Disease (M-EID) NSF IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) program, and the NSF sponsored EPSCOR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) at The University of Montana.
