The undergraduate division of the Department of Mathematics offers a wide variety of courses in both pure and applied mathematics. Faculty are members of the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, which has become a leading research center through its tradition of integrating mathematical theory and applications.
In addition to the mathematics major, joint programs are available in mathematics and (1) computer science, (2) data science, (3) economics, and (4) engineering. These majors lead to the B.A. degree in four years, with the exception of the engineering option, which leads to the B.S. degree from the College of Arts and Science and the B.S. degree from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in five years. An accelerated, five-year B.A. and M.S. mathematics program is offered with the Graduate School of Arts and Science, as well as an M.A. in mathematics education program with Steinhardt. The department also provides honors programs in (1) mathematics, (2) mathematics and computer science, and (3) economics and mathematics for outstanding students. In addition, independent study courses are available for students with special interests.
Mathematics majors are encouraged to spend a semester studying away. Currently, mathematics courses are offered at NYU Abu Dhabi, NYU London, NYU Paris, and NYU Shanghai.
