The Department of Mathematics at the University of Louisville is located in the Natural Science Building on the main (Belknap) campus in the heart of Louisville

The principal missions of The Department of Mathematics are to teach mathematics and perform research in the mathematical sciences.  The Department also provides professional mathematical services to other University units as well as local and regional groups.

The Mathematics Department has over twenty full time permanent faculty members, all holding a doctorate in their field, and several visiting faculty. 

The Mathematics Department is fortunate to have a very cordial and very competent staff to support its faculty and student population.

The Mathematics Department is dedicated to providing a high quality mathematics education for both majors and non majors alike.  To this end, The Department has designed a variety of courses to meet the needs and desires of today's UofL students.

The Mathematics Department maintains a strong research program in both basic and applied mathematics.  Faculty research interests are broad.  The Department also hosts occasional research seminars, workshops, and conferences that attract mathematical experts from around the world.

Undergraduate Degree Programs
The Department of Mathematics offers two undergraduate degree programs as well as minors.

Graduate Degrees
The Department offers a Master of Arts in Mathematics and a Ph.D. degree in Applied and Industrial Mathematics. This new Ph.D. program prepares mathematicians with a blend of advanced mathematical and statistical knowledge, together with experience applying that knowledge.

Seminars and Colloquia
Weekly seminars in many areas of mathematics are offered during the semester. The Department also sponsors a colloquium series featuring visitors as well as local faculty. In addition, the Department hosts a small number of special talks directed at a general audience, featuring internationally known experts from mathematics, economics, finance and related fields. 
The Department has three computer laboratories. Two large labs, equipped with Macintosh computers, are used in many introductory courses. The smaller advanced computer lab, equipped with state of the art PC and Macintosh computers, is used for upper level courses. 

Honors Program
The Department offers sections of several of its courses as well as occasional seminars as part of the Honors Program.
