The Department of Mathematics offers a variety of interdisciplinary accelerated 5-year BS/MS programs! Transition to the graduate program happens during the 4th year. Your Akron Guarantee Scholarship can be used in the first 4 years to cover both undergraduate and graduate expenses, and the Department has graduate assistantships available for the 5th year. Planning early is the key to success for these programs; for more information, visit 5-year Master's or contact Dr. Pat Wilber, Graduate Coordinator of the Math Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The top 10 best jobs of 2018 and 2017 include mathematician, operations research analyst, actuary, statistician and one of the best paid but still most in demand for 2017: data scientist. Our department is part of the brand-new UA data science program!

...reaches realistic solutions using abstract tools. We can create mathematical models at any scale — electrons, ecosystems, or economies. We can design new molecules for medicines and materials. We can optimize for efficient communication and secure networking. We can decode a genome and decipher its history. We can discover the best environmental and financial options.
Applied mathematicians use mathematics to solve problems in science and engineering. We set up systems of differential and functional equations, solve them directly or approximately via programming, and then apply the practical results. Theoretical mathematicians explore beyond the physical models. We create new mathematics by uncovering logical structures, geometries, patterns and symmetries.
With a degree in mathematics or applied mathematics you can work in virtually any field— in the public, academic and industrial sectors. Math majors have all the skills employers want!
The Math Department's Eleventh Annual Poster Session will be held on Wednesday 30 November. It will feature over 40 student research projects in a variety of mathematical areas.
