Message from Professor Nir Sochen, Head of School
Welcome to the School of Mathematical Sciences at Tel Aviv University!
The School of Mathematical Sciences is made up of the Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, and Statistics and Operations Research Departments. It is home to nearly 90 faculty members, 85 Ph.D. students, and currently has over 200 M. Sc. students and about 500 undergraduates.
The programs are fascinating and challenging. The School is a true hub of academic activities covering the whole spectrum of mathematics and statistics. Seminars are held weekly in different areas. The School also attracts leading scientists from around the world who visit and lecture
The school offers programs in mathematics and statistics, as either a single major or a double major.
The mathematics curriculum emphasizes logical inference, with a focus on proving theorems and a view toward depth and abstraction. The first year study program lays the foundations for the advanced courses that are studied in the second and third year. These courses expose the depth and beauty of mathematics, as well as its applications to practical problems.
The programs in statistics and operations research provide an extensive background in these areas, and also equip students with a solid base in mathematics. Classes cover data analysis and mathematical modeling and advanced computational tools.
Students who choose to take a double major can select from a wide range of disciplines . Frequent choices are computer science, economics, business administration, philosophy and psychology. In addition, students can enroll in a double major in mathematics and statistics-operations research.
Graduate studies include courses and research under the guidance of a faculty member. Research enables students to engage in the fascinating world of scientific discovery.
The school offers a variety of M.Sc. programs. ThePh.D. track involves research and work with a supervisor from the faculty.
