The Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of WisconsinMilwaukee is home to an active community of teachers, scholars, undergraduates, and graduate students. In addition to most traditional areas of Pure and Applied Mathematics, the department contains all UWM programs in Actuarial Science and Atmospheric Science.
The department offers Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral studies in all of these areas, in addition to several interdisciplinary programs. Established in 1963, the PhD in Mathematics is the original doctoral program at UWM, founded by Dr. Morris Marden.
Mathematics is the principal language of modern science and technology. In such diverse areas as physics, engineering, economics, computer science, and biology, much of the subject matter is presented in mathematical terms. In addition, mathematical techniques are now being used in many areas which formerly were nonmathematical; for example, history, political science, psychology, and medicine.
Some students are drawn to mathematics because of the beauty they find in its structure and logic, others because it allows a deeper understanding of an allied area of study.
Actuarial science is the mathematical analysis of problems in economics, finance, and insurance. It requires knowledge of statistics, probability, and interest theory and how they relate to financial issues.
Atmospheric science is the study of shortterm weather and longterm climate, involving both applied activities such as weather forecasting and analysis and fundamental research. It uses advanced methods in statistics and numerical modeling.
Students of the sciences, engineering, computer science, economics, and business often complete a significant number of mathematical sciences credits. These students are encouraged to take a mathematics major or minor, which adds an official recognition of important analytical skills valued by employers and graduate schools.
Students interested in teaching mathematics at the K12 level should consult the School of Education section of this catalog.
For the Mathematics, the Actuarial Science, and the Applied Math & Computer Science programs, please visit the department web page at https://uwm.edu/math/ and follow the links to the undergraduate program for more information. For the Atmospheric Science program, please visit the program web page at https://uwm.edu/atmosphericscience/ and follow the links to the undergraduate program for more information.
There are three curricular areas in the Department of Mathematical Sciences:
 Atmospheric Science (ATM SCI)
 Mathematics (MATH)
 Mathematical Statistics (MTHSTAT)
Undergraduate Studies  We offer three minors and five undergraduate degrees:

Bachelor of Science Degrees: Mathematics; Atmospheric Science; Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (AMCS)

Bachelor of Arts Degrees: Mathematics; Actuarial Science

Minors: Mathematics; Actuarial Science; Atmospheric Science
Graduate Studies in Mathematical Sciences
The Department has vibrant graduate programs leading to both the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in each of Mathematics and Atmospheric Science. In addition to traditional areas of Mathematics and Statistics, the Mathematics graduate offerings also include UWMilwaukee's Actuarial Science programs. The department also offers a newly established dual degree in mathematics with Fachhochschule Aachen (Aachen University of Applied Sciences) in Germany. Students may prepare for careers in teaching at the secondary or college level and for careers in research in the academic, industrial, government, or business communities.
