The Bowdoin Mathematics department is a welcoming community of dedicated scholars and students brought together by our shared joy in the exploration of mathematics.

As a liberal arts department, our research and teaching range across the discipline, from number theory to statistics, with outside connections to biology, computer science, political science, economics, and physics. Our students form the core of our community. With roughly fifty majors each year, mathematics is among the largest majors on campus, while still retaining an intimate and engaging culture that attempts to cultivate the spark of learning. In addition to engaging classroom dynamics, we benefit from weekly student-faculty lunches, faculty-supported study sessions, and a variety of seminar series focusing on faculty research, teaching practice, and topics of interest to students.
