We’ll give you the tools develop the analytical and reasoning skills that not only prepare you to be a mathematician, but also a lifelong problem solver.
Our mathematician students expand their horizons through internships, student-faculty research, community engagement, study away, and more.
Each year several Allegheny math majors participate in the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition, the premier national undergraduate mathematics problem-solving competition, which attracts the best and brightest mathematics majors from across the nation.
Since 1972, this speaker series has brought Allegheny students into contact with many nationally and internationally prominent mathematicians. Currently, the math department is host to a distinguished guest speaker each year.
Many mathematics students carry out independent research or collaborative research with faculty in addition to the Senior Comp, with a variety of opportunities to interact with faculty on and off campus.
