The Department of Mathematics forms a vibrant intellectual community, comprising of excellent students (BSc, MSc and PhD), world-leading faculty, experienced professional services staff, and high-achieving alumni. The Department has grown rapidly in recent years. We introduced new teaching programmes and modules, and hired outstanding new staff to broaden our research and teaching portfolio. We offer a supportive and friendly environment in which everyone can fulfil their potential. We have a strong commitment to promote Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.
The Department’s teaching and research are shaped to a large extent by its position within LSE. We view teaching and research as complementary activities, each enhancing the other. Our aim is to be excellent in both, in a way that reflects our location within a social sciences institution, engaging with all parts of LSE.
The Department hosts a number of research seminars and public lectures throughout the year, which are all publicised on our website. The most recent research work produced by our members can be found on our Publications page.
On the teaching side, the Department offers a popular and successful range of BSc degrees in Mathematics and Economics, Mathematics with Economics, and the recently added BSc Financial Mathematics and Statistics. At graduate level, we offer three programmes: MSc in Applicable Mathematics, MSc in Financial Mathematics and MSc in Operations Research & Analytics. There are also exiting opportunities for research students (MPhil/PhD) in the Department.
