Department of Mathematical Sciences Undergraduate Academics

At Stevens, we do mathematics differently.

In the Department of Mathematical Sciences, you'll join an elite and close-knit community of students and faculty passionate about all aspects of mathematics in academia and beyond. You will learn not only through lectures but through collaborations with peers and faculty and through seminars, workshops, and conferences.

Our faculty are leaders in research and in numerous educational initiatives, including the development of innovative teaching methods. Thanks to small class sizes, our professors are always available for one-on-one meetings, and a multi-tiered advising system will help you create a path that’s catered to your goals and needs.

Earn your undergraduate and master's degrees in five years or less.

Stevens’ Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) enables you to apply credits from your undergraduate coursework towards a master’s degree, allowing you to earn your bachelor's and master's degrees in just five years.


Research projects may begin as early as the sophomore year. The Senior Research Project, a program requirement, entails working closely with a faculty member — and possibly other students or an industry partner — to complete a capstone project that gets featured at the annual Innovation Expo and provides excellent preparation for both graduate school and careers in industry.

Our mathematics majors have co-authored papers on group theory, entered PhD programs in mathematics upon completing their bachelor’s degree, secured coveted scholarships and internships, conducted summer research projects at universities in Europe and much more.

Nearly 100% of our students secure a job offer or admission to graduate school upon graduation.

Opportunities for Students

Math Major Meetups

Hosted by the department each semester, these meetups are informal gatherings where all mathematics majors and mathematics faculty are invited to get together, chat, eat pizza, and solve puzzles.

Stevens Math Club

Join the Stevens Math Club to meet with fellow mathematics enthusiasts and work on interesting problems. Among other things, the Math Club provides training for the famous Putnam Competition, a prestigious problem-solving competition for college students across the United States and Canada, under the guidance of an experienced faculty member.

Mathematics Outreach

Mathematics majors are encouraged to get involved with the department’s outreach activities. These include the Stevens Mathematical Olympiad, an annual problem-solving competition for K-12 students that attracts hundreds of participants to campus, and the NSF-funded Stevens Math Circle Initiative, which organizes undergraduate-led mathematics enrichment for youth in our local community.

Internship and Research Seminars

Participate in undergraduate-organized seminars where mathematics majors present on their own experiences working for summer internships or research projects and share advice for how other students can get involved.

Student Advisory Board

Join monthly meetings of the Student Advisory Board of the Department of Mathematical Sciences — or the advisory board itself — to participate in steering our undergraduate program.

Pinnacle Scholars Program

This highly selective program gives students the chance to spend their summers conducting paid research or participating in an international experience, among many other benefits.

Center for Student Success

Supporting the overall Stevens strategic goal of excellence in all we do, each department at Stevens has its own Center for Student Success – a holistic student resource center committed to promoting the success and retention of its undergraduate students.

As a student, your advising needs evolve through the course of study, and the department's Center for Student Success focuses on facilitating a positive experience at each stage of the undergraduate program.

Incoming New Students

First Years (First Semester and Transfers)

In your first semester, you'll engage in activities and support designed to introduce you to and familiarize you with the department's community, your academic advisors, and the academic and social support structure available to ensure your success and well-being. You'll meet other students, faculty members, and experience ways to integrate yourself into the student body.


Second year student activities are designed to bridge theory with practice and encourage your professional development through initial exposure to upcoming professional choices, like co-op and internship assignments, research experiences, international opportunities, electives and specialization options, and professional society memberships.


In your third year, your student-advisor relationship will shift from group activities to individually-focused strategy sessions about post-graduation options like graduate school or industry, selecting a final co-op assignment, and picking a senior capstone project.


In your senior year, you'll complete and present your senior capstone project. The culmination of your education is the successful preparation for the next step in your careers: graduate school or industry employment. Many students end up working for companies they interned with or collaborated on industry-sponsored projects during their capstone. The Stevens Career Center also offers numerous opportunities to network via career fairs and faculty mentors often help students gain industry connections.
