Page Content The Department of Mathematics subscribes to the view that “Mathematics as an expression of
the Human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic
perfection". Through the different fields of Algebra, Analysis, Geometry, Number Theory,
Statistics, and Applied Mathematics, the Department aims to train students in quantitative
reasoning, in dealing with abstraction, in enhancing their sense of formalism, in tackling
Mathematical problems, and in writing clear and rigorous proofs. The training will help the
student acquire a sound balance between abstract generality and colorful individuality, and
between the qualitative and quantitative aspects of Mathematics. It also will help the student
master the theory through a clear comprehension of the theoretical aspects, but without losing
sight of applications. Graduates of the Mathematics Department should be well placed to work
in various professional areas of Education, Finance, Information Technology, or for pursuing
graduate studies in Mathematics or a related area.
