The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers a broad spectrum of educational opportunities at all levels from BA to PhD. Our programs prepare students for a wide variety of careers in fields such as statistical analysis for banks, insurance companies, and medical research, financial analysis, and K12 or higher education. Our faculty includes internationally acclaimed experts in analysis, biomathematics, cryptography, financial mathematics, partial differential equations, probability, and statistics.

Student research opportunities begin at the undergraduate level with the opportunity to work with a faculty member as part of their capstone experience; and continue through to the MS and PhD levels, where extended research projects frequently lead to journal publication and both domestic and international trips to study at workshops or to present results at conferences. At the graduate level a variety of active research seminars take place weekly and students get the opportunity to mingle with top researchers right here at UC. 

Our summer graduate program, Master of Arts for Teachers of Mathematics (MAT), has been running for many years, bringing in local school teachers for a 3-year content-focused master's degree.

Our department maintains close ties with the local community, offering students the opportunity to intern at local businesses and government agencies. We have a number of international collaboration agreements with universities around the world which have led to exchanges of both faculty and students. Consider supporting our students and mission through the Mathematical Sciences Department’s scholarships and endowment funds.


We recommend you contact members of the Department via email before going to their offices. A full list of Math Department members, along with email addresses, can be found at our People in the Department page.

UC welcomes Einstein public lecture series speaker Nathaniel...

Event: April 15, 2023 5:00 PM

“From Segregation to Research Mathematician” is the title of this year’s Einstein Public Lecture in Mathematics, presented in conjunction with the American Mathematical Society’s Spring Sectional Meeting. The meeting will be held at the University of Cincinnati on April 15-16, and is expected to draw hundreds of mathematical scholars from around the region to UC’s Uptown campus. The lecture will be presented by research mathematician Nathaniel Whitaker, interim dean of the University of Massachusetts Amherst College of Natural Sciences. Whitaker has roots in UC’s College of Arts and Sciences, from which he earned his master’s degree in mathematics in the 1980s.


What is Mathematical Sciences?

March 24, 2023

Misconceptions can arise when it comes to pursuing a mathematics degree. It is commonly assumed that undergraduates studying mathematics are on the path to becoming math teachers or professors, but this is not always the case. The mathematics department at the University of Cincinnati's College of Arts and Sciences, for instance, equips students with the skills and knowledge needed for a diverse array of careers, such as biomathematical researcher and cryptographer.
