Undergraduate Mathematics Home


An undergraduate's best resources at Florida State University are the faculty, graduates, and fellow students.

Getting to know faculty members through classes and office hours is a great way to learn about mathematics and about research opportunities. An overview of faculty research can be found on the department research page. By following links to individual faculty webpages you can find out about current research activities and recent publications.

FSU Math Directed Reading Program

The DRP in Mathematics is a program designed to provide undergradute students with the opportunity to engage in independent study under the guidance and mentorship of a graduate student. Please see the DRP website for more information.

Seminars and Colloquia

All FSU students are welcome to attend math department seminars and colloquia. The department offers a weekly tea and Colloquium most Friday afternoons in the fall and spring semesters. Colloquium speakers aim portions of their talk toward advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students. They provide a wonderful opportunity for students to absorb the culture and language of mathematics.
