Research Opportunities

The faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics believe that purposeful inquiry—a deliberate and organized set of experiences where a student identifies an idea, engages in a meaningful pursuit and exploration, and creates a product that reflects the effort—lies at the core of a Smith education. We've designed a series of research opportunities to help foster this inquiry, including MTH 301 (Topics in Mathematics and Statistics), special (independent) studies and summer research.
