The Department of Mathematical Sciences
The Department of Mathematical Sciences provides students with the training in mathematics and statistics necessary for success in their careers. Mathematics more and more becomes an integral part of hi-tech industries; many technological, political and social processes have become so complex that they could not be really understood without a mathematician's involvement. Our graduates are prepared for exciting and fulfilling careers in academia, industry, government, and other areas. In addition to educational activities, our faculty are committed to excellence both in research in the mathematical sciences, and in service to the citizens of Montana and the wider community.
Nestled in the heart of western Montana’s stunning natural landscape, the University of Montana is a place where top-tier students, educators and researchers from across the country and around the globe come and thrive. UM is located in Missoula, Montana’s second-largest city with a population of 80,000 residents. The University draws a diverse population to Missoula and helps cultivate an educated, engaged and vibrant community.
