The Department of Mathematics has a long and distinguished history at the University of Illinois and is rated in the top 20 mathematics departments in the nation. Today the department has 70 faculty, 20 postdoctoral faculty, and 160 graduate students. Many of our faculty have spoken at the International Congress of Mathematicians, and won national and international prizes for research.

The Department has one of the largest and most comprehensive mathematics graduate programs in the world and supports a large number of postdoctoral positions, offering training for careers in the mathematical sciences.

The distinguished faculty have interests in many areas of the mathematical sciences, including Actuarial Science, Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Combinatorics, Differential Equations, Geometry, Logic, Number Theory, Probability Theory, and Topology. The Department's faculty conduct research that supports the on-going theoretical development of the mathematical sciences, and that simultaneously promotes the interdisciplinary use of mathematics in science, engineering and other fields.
