The SDSU Department of Mathematics and Statistics is a large, diverse, and active organization. The department’s mission is to provide excellent instruction, conduct high-quality research and scholarly activity, and prepare graduates and provide mathematical and statistical services that are both regionally relevant and internationally competitive.

The SDSU Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers the M.S. in Mathematics, the M.S. in Statistics, the M.S. in Data Science, and the Ph.D. in Computational Science and Statistics. All four programs offer students the opportunity to pursue graduate studies in a collegial environment with high faculty-student interaction and research activity, and are particularly effective at preparing graduates to work in business, industry, or government as well as the more traditional area of higher education.
