Department of Mathematical Sciences Undergraduate Academics

At Stevens, we do math differently.

In the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Stevens, you'll join an elite and close-knit community of students and faculty passionate about all things mathematical. You will learn not only through lectures, but through team problem-solving sessions, self-study projects, and innovative teaching methods. Small class sizes mean that professors are always available for one-on-one meetings, and half-semester courses allow us to design flexible schedules that cater to your individual needs.

A Technology-Driven Curriculum

Lectures feature live polling that allows students and professors alike to instantly assess how well key concepts are understood, and we deliver all of our content online – no textbook required.

We're also excited to have introduced Gradarius into our courses. Gradarius is a one-of-a-kind online learning platform developed right here at Stevens, and expressly for the purpose of helping students master calculus problems in an intuitive, step-by-step manner. Gradarius has completely replaced written homework in our calculus sequence.

Since implementing the Stevens Calculus System, we’ve witnessed an increase in student satisfaction and a dramatic drop in the percentage (over 20%) of students who receive a D or F or withdraw from a course.

Real-World Experience

In our department, you'll have the opportunity to work one-on-one with a faculty member to conduct mathematical research on a topic that interests you and take courses that prepare you for graduate school or for a career in cryptography, data science, finance, actuarial science, and more. In addition, you'll be given priority to secure a paid job working for the department’s outreach programs, including the Stevens Math Circle Initiative and the annual Stevens Math Olympiad.

Recent and current math majors at Stevens have coauthored 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 institutions in Europe and much more.

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.

Sophomores

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.

Juniors

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.

Seniors

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.
