Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at the
Johns Hopkins University!  On our website you can find information about the array of activities hosted by the Department.  Here is an overview of our activities:

Academic Programs

The goal of each of our programs is to provide the highest quality education in mathematics at all levels including the most resent developments in mathematical research.  Our Ph.D. graduates go on to do research at some of the top departments in the country. Undergraduate math majors at Hopkins finish with a degree that prepares them for a wide spectrum of career opportunities both in and out of academia. And our Future Scholars Program introduces high school students to the fun and power of mathematics. Specific questions about the programs listed above may be directed to our Senior Academic Program Coordinator or our Director of Undergraduate Studies.

Research

Johns Hopkins has a long history of preeminence in mathematics research, dating back to its founding by J.J. Sylvester in 1886.  As one example of this, the oldest running mathematics journal in the Western Hemisphere, the American Journal of Mathematics, is directed and edited within the Mathematics Department and is published by Johns Hopkins University Press. Today, a vibrant scientific environment is maintained through the interaction of our  faculty, postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and a variety of visiting mathematicians. Our areas of expertise include analysis, partial differential equations, algebraic/complex/differential geometry, mathematical physics, number theory, and algebraic topology. There are weekly seminars and colloquia on a range of topics, the George Kempf and Monroe H. Martin Colloquium Lecture Series, which every year bring top experts from around the world to Hopkins to lecture on current developments.  The Department is also home to the Japan-US Mathematics Institute (JAMI), which sponsors visitors and seminars throughout the year.

To complement the time spent on teaching and research activities, there are many occasions for people in our department to get to know one another better. These include afternoon teas, an undergraduate Math Club, picnics in the fall and spring, an annual winter holiday party, pick-up soccer, and more. We invite everyone in the Hopkins community to join us for these events!

Please use this website to explore the many facets of the Mathematics Department.  I look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
