Welcome to NIU's Department of Mathematical Sciences incorporating the
Division of Statistics.
On behalf of the Department and Division I want to welcome all visitors
to our website. Here you will see how mathematics is a vibrant and
lively science of great beauty with many ways to enhance our
understanding of the world around us.
The Department contains faculty members with international reputations
and offers 6 different emphases at the bachelors' level; a mathematics
masters degree with 4 distinct tracks; a masters' degree in Applied
Probability and Statistics offered by the Division of Statistics and a
recently introduced Master of Science in Teaching degree. In addition
the department offers a Ph.D. Program with current enrollment of
around 30 students. Departmental instructional facilities include the
Math Education Lab, the
Math Emporium and the
Mathematics Assistance Center.
The department's programs are big enough to offer a wide variety of
options yet small enough so that students are likely to be closely
involved with professional faculty from the time of their arrival at
