Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics is aligned with the mission of Georgetown University, affirming the interconnection of teaching and research and fostering a close relationship between faculty and students.

We strive to make an impact on the disciplines of mathematics and statistics and on the broader society through the following goals:

  • internationally recognized research in pure and applied mathematics and statistics,
  • dedicated teaching that empowers undergraduate and graduate students to formulate and solve mathematical and statistical problems and communicate the solutions and their significance,
  • training a diverse group of problem solvers who will be in a position to choose amongst the many opportunities available to professionals with well-developed quantitative skills, and
  • promoting the success of a diverse group of faculty at all levels, through mentoring, material support and collegial interactions that enhance research and teaching.

We offer undergraduate majors leading to a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science, with the option of completing a major with Honors. We also offer an undergraduate minor in Mathematics and an undergraduate minor in Statistics.  

For graduate studies, we offer a Master of Science in Mathematics and Statistics and a PhD program in Applied Mathematics.
