Undergraduate Research Opportunities

The Department of Mathematics and Physics offers undergraduate students the opportunity to volunteer and to participate in faculty-mentored research projects in disciplines that interest them. The programs offer experience, academic growth, and, in some instances, credits. The goal is to introduce students to the rigors of academic research and the fulfillment of discovery.

Graduate Research Opportunities

The Department of Mathematics and Physics offers graduate students the opportunity to be involved in various research projects which are supervised by tenured and tenure-track faculty. This provides the students with the intellectual ability to understand various disciplines in mathematics and physics. The department supports graduate students to travel and present their research in conferences.
