Department of Mathematical Sciences Undergraduate Studies: Where Hands-On Experience Prepares You for Real-World Success

We’ll show you how to turn your love for mathematics into an innovative career that makes an impact on the world. Nearly 100% of our students secure a job offer or admission to graduate school upon graduation.

As an integral part of our close-knit community of peers and faculty passionate about all aspects of mathematics, you'll learn through lectures, research projects, workshops and seminars — and have the chance to give back by sharing what you've learned through outreach programs like the annual Stevens Math Olympiad and the NSF-funded Stevens Math Circle Initiative.

Our proximity to New York City and enthusiastic alumni network also provide a strong networking and professional foundation upon which you can build your career. Our mathematics majors have co-authored papers on group theory, secured coveted scholarships and internships, conducted summer research projects at universities in Europe, entered Ph.D. programs and more.
