Mathematics is the language of modern science; basic training in the discipline is essential for those who want to understand, as well as for those who want to take part in, the important scientific developments of our time. Acquaintance with mathematics is also extremely useful for students in the social sciences and valuable for anyone interested in the full range of human culture and the ways of knowing the universe in which we live.
Klarman Fellows pursue research in any discipline in the College, including natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and the creative arts as well as cross-disciplinary fields. The application deadline is October 14.Read More

Course Spotlight: Theoretical Linear Algebra and Calculus
Every Wednesday night, students gather in the math lounge of Malott Hall and spend 2.5 hours huddled around chalkboards and poring over textbooks as they seek solutions to some of the most vexing math problem sets a first-year student might encounter in Theoretical Linear Algebra and Calculus.
These are problem sets that could stump even a graduate student, but with this group of young mathematicians, the challenges are welcome.
