The Department of Mathematics and Physics was formed in 2013 by combining the
Department of Mathematics with the Program in Physics at the University
of New Haven.
In that sense we are a new Department, but we are also a Department
that draws on a long history and tradition of effective education
in the mathematical sciences. We are a Department that leads
by example, in education and in research, and the quality of our faculty
is the single most compelling force behind our ability to excel.
If you are a new student or a returning student
or whether you are a math major, or are minoring in
mathematics, or are just taking a math class to fulfill the requirements
of your major, please take full advantage of the opportunities
we provide that help to enhance the learning experience.
Developing mastery in any of the mathematical sciences can be a challenge,
however success in these fields provides an opportunity for advancement,
and self-advancement that is perhaps second to none.
Our goal is to help provide the framework and the support for
an educational experience that is also second to none.
If you are thinking of coming to UNH because of its reputation
and its programs in experiential education that help prepare you
for the real world, it's important to know that our programs
in math and in physics are designed to prepare students for success
in industry or for further careers in teaching and in academia.
We have a wide range of options for those interested in majoring
in mathematics, and we also strongly encourage students to consider
a minor in mathematics or in physics, particularly those considering
the need to advance in their careers in the future. The mathematical
sciences form the foundation for being able to work in an increasingly
technical world in which math in one form or another is a part of
the solution process.
Please feel free to contact us for further information on how we
can help chart a course for you in the mathematical sciences
or to provide feedback.
We're providing Math and Physics News because we very
much want to keep students, faculty, and our larger community
informed of current activities and new events in the Department,
and of the improvements we make and the opportunities we provide.
