MEGL accepts applications for research interns every semester and summer. Funding is available for work-study students, and qualified students can earn course credit or work towards an honors thesis. Please see the MEGL web page for details.
Applications are now being accepted for new undergraduate research opportunties in computational math and data science. Information on the 2016 GMU-EXTREEMS program is available at the EXTREEMS web page.
The Mathematics Department has an agreement with Fairfax County Public Schools for FCPS-GMU Dual Enrollment Courses.
Mason's popular program for young math and tech students. Information is available on the Summer 2016 Mathematics and Technology for Talented Youth program, organized by Math professor J.E. Lin.
Mathematics is one of the few disciplines that teaches us about the power of thought as distinct from the power of authority. It is not necessarily dependent on our physical observations of the world, and yet it constantly provides models for our observations. Such models—usually studied in applied mathematics—may have relevance in traditional sciences such as physics, biology, or chemistry. Topics studied by mathematicians, such as chaos theory or dynamical systems, often serve as models for economics, neuroscience, or predictors of fluctuations in the stock market.
Students majoring in mathematics take courses in the logical foundations of mathematics, the calculus sequence, matrix algebra, and discrete mathematics. Majors choose from a concentration of applied, traditional, or actuarial mathematics. Both the B.A. and the B.S. in mathematics will allow entry to advanced studies or career opportunities as diverse as the fields to which mathematics is applied. The metro region of Washington, DC is a particularly fertile area for related job opportunities, including consulting, teaching, and government.
Since it was founded in 1972, George Mason University has grown into a major educational force and earned a reputation as an innovative, entrepreneurial institution. Just minutes from Washington, D.C., George Mason has a growing and diverse student body and an exceptional faculty of enterprizing scholars. At the center of the world's political, information, and communications networks, George Mason is the university needed by a region and a world driven by new social, economic, and technological realities.
