Welcome to Mathematics and Statistics

With close to 60 full time faculty and staff members, the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at UNC Charlotte has the largest and most diverse staff at the university, with faculty members having a wide range research interests in fields of pure mathematics such as algebra, analysis and topology, as well as in fields of applied mathematics such as computational mathematics, mathematical physics, partial differential equations, and statistics. Mathematics Education is also a strong component of the department.

The department offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics, M.S. degrees in mathematics, and Doctoral degrees with concentrations in applied mathematics and statistics. Additionally, the department also offers M.S. degrees in Mathematical Finance jointly with the Departments of Finance and Economics in the Belk College of Business Administration.
