Why Mathematical Sciences

The IUPUI Department of Mathematical Sciences is a vibrant academic community with prominent researchers in several areas of mathematics and statistics.

We prioritize collaborative and interdisciplinary study, including life sciences research, as the Indiana University School of Medicine is also located at IUPUI. With a low student/faculty ratio, the department offers students many opportunities for close student-faculty interaction and guidance. The department is housed within the School of Science at IUPUI, which is part of the Purdue University state-wide academic system. The mathematics degrees are conferred through the Purdue University system while the biostatics degree is conferred through the Indiana University System.    See our presentation on the city, campus and department.
