The Pure and Applied Mathematics Program
The Mathematics Department has excellent Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellows who combine considerable expertise in many fields across Pure and Applied Mathematics, Probability, Computational Mathematics, and the Actuarial Sciences.
One fascinating application some faculty members are involved is the Virtual Cell Project. The aim of this project, carried out in collaboration with the UConn Health Center, is to develop a computational tool for the study of cellular physiological processes.
The department is working hard to keep up to date all levels of our courses and degree programs, actively engaging in a pilot project to renew and improve its undergraduate programs. Our graduate program has very strong appeal, with well over a hundred students currently pursuing graduate degrees in our various programs.
If you are a prospective student, we would be delighted to describe in detail the many advantages of graduate and undergraduate education in Mathematics at the University of Connecticut. We are proud of our instructional staff, which includes two University Teaching Fellows and others who have been honored with significant national and institutional teaching awards. Our projects, such as the Virtual Cell Project, allow both graduates and undergraduates to participate. Specialty programs in Actuarial Science and Applied Mathematics include internships that provide practical experience along with generous financial support. We continue to expand our programs in Mathematical Finance and Mathematics Education.
Our Graduate Assistant financial aid packages are among the most generous in the country and our undergraduates receive approximately $75,000 a year in scholarships.
