About the Department of Mathematics

Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and Statistics


The Department of Mathematics and Statistics here at North Carolina A & T strives to maintain an environment that enhances the learning of mathematics and contributes to the vitality of mathematics as a living discipline through course offerings, seminars and colloquia, research, and public service. The mathematics faculty is committed to maintaining high-quality instruction as well as student development and mentoring. Our faculty members also conduct ongoing research on the best mathematical and statistical approaches to problems in a variety of areas. Graduate students contribute to faculty’s research projects, while taking advanced course work in applied mathematics, mathematical modeling, and statistics.

Department History 

From 1915 to 1967, the Department of Mathematics was a part of the School of Engineering of The Agricultural and Technical College of North Carolina, a land grant college created by the Morrill Act.

In 1967 the North Carolina General Assembly re-designated the College as a Regional University effective July 1, 1967. Under this designation, the Department of Mathematics became a part of the newly created School of Arts and Sciences. In September 1968, the Department moved to the newly constructed Merrick Hall. It subsequently moved to the newly constructed Marteena Hall. At that time, the facility included modern classrooms, two computer laboratories and a teacher education laboratory. N.C. A&T became a constituent university of The University of North Carolina in 1972.

The Department of Mathematics initiated a program in Computer Science at the University and from 1981-1992 was the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, offering degree programs in Mathematics and Computer and Information Science. In 1992, Computer Science was reconstituted as a separate department and relocated to the College of Engineering (located in McNair Hall).

The Department of Mathematics continues to serve two main functions:

The Department of Mathematics delivers on average about 25,000 credit hours worth of instruction per year. Some faculty members of the Department of Mathematics hold joint appointments with the Energy and Environmental Systems Ph.D. program and the Joint School of Nanosciences and Nanoengineering.


Marteena Hall


Marteena Hall is a prominent feature of the north side of campus (nearest Aggie Stadium.) In addition to housing the Department of Mathematics, Marteena Hall houses the Department of Physics, the Greensboro Area Mathematics and Science Education Center (GAMSEC), biology laboratories, two general use computer facilities, a general use student study lounge, a faculty lounge, Marteena 122: the "Undergraduate Computational Research Training Lab," and other administrative offices.
