Welcome to the Institute of Mathematical Sciences

Our mission is to train new generations of mathematical scientists for positions in education, industry, and government laboratories. In support of this mission, the CGU Institute of Mathematical Sciences offers a variety of masters and doctoral degrees. We maintain a strong applied research component through our internationally recognized Engineering and Industrial Applied Mathematics Clinic, offering students first-hand experience in solving significant mathematical problems for industry and government clients.

In Claremont, we offer the resources of a large university with the personal attention of a small institute. Along with the five other mathematics departments within the Claremont Colleges, we are a part of the Claremont Center for the Mathematical Sciences, forming a pure and applied math community with over 60 faculty members – one of the largest mathematical science communities in California. As the graduate component, the Institute of Mathematical Sciences at CGU is a tight-knit department focusing on training applied mathematicians. We offer a collegial environment where your success is our primary objective.

In addition to our regular mathematics degree programs, we participate in a range of partnerships with other Southern California universities as well as other departments. These partnerships include a joint Ph.D. in Engineering and Industrial Applied Mathematics with California State University, Long Beach, joint MS and Ph.D. degrees in Financial Engineering with CGU’s Drucker School of Management, and a joint Ph.D. degree in Computational Science with San Diego State University. We also encourage and support dual-degree programs in fields where mathematics can offer a stronger foundation or deeper understanding of principles. We accept both full-time and part-time students in our degree programs, with many courses scheduled at convenient times for working professionals.

The selection of a graduate program is an instrumental decision for your professional career. We invite you to explore further the CGU Institute of Mathematical Sciences, and discover the uniqueness of the graduate education that Claremont offers.
