The Department of Mathematics is one of seven departments making up Purdue’s College of Science. The Department has an international reputation as an outstanding center for mathematical education, scholarship and research. Together with visiting researchers, its 65 professors provide it with active involvement in current developments in many major areas of mathematics. Faculty research interests can be found in the Faculty Research Areas list or in our Faculty directory.

The Department offers the Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Also, the Department is closely associated with other programs, including Actuarial Science, Statistics, and Computer Science.

Actuarial Science Program

The Purdue Actuarial Science Program is an interdisciplinary program offered jointly by the Department of Mathematics and Department of Statistics.

The program offers a major in Actuarial Science that prepares students for an actuarial career as well as providing complete preparation for the first five exams set by the Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society. Students receive an Actuarial Science Degree, a Statistics Degree, and a Management Minor. We do not offer graduate degrees in Actuarial Science. For more information contact Julie Morris.
