Welcome to the Department of Mathematics and
Physics at the University of New Haven for Fall Semester 2016.
Our goal is to assure that the Department is a driving force in
the mathematical sciences, and that it is a
resource to the University of New Haven in
These goals define us, and let us stand out from so many other places to
work or study. These pages extend our reach to broadly engage our community
in the mathematical sciences.
The Department of Mathematics and Physics provides a
wide range of courses covering all aspects of math and physics education
from the introductory to the advanced undergraduate and introductory
graduate level. The Department offers BA and BS options for
degrees in mathematics and
also offers minors in Mathematics and in Physics.
The Department is part of the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and
of 15 full time faculty, 9 professional associate faculty, and 25 adjunct faculty and tutors.
In addition, the Department operates a dual quad Xeon server for
faculty and students as a computational resource.
11/19: We are pleased to announce that starting in Spring 2017
we will be accepting students to a much anticipated update of our
BA and BS in Mathematics Programs. These provide for greater flexibility
and a wider range of curriculum options. The programs follow the
tradition of our existing BA/BS programs, but expand opportunities
for undergraduate research and hands-on-learning. Check these out
under the Dept Catalog info
on the right navigation bar.
07/25: It has come to our attention that Prof. Reza Sarhangi passed
away earlier this month.
Reza's monumental contribution was his singlehandedly establishing the highly
successful and internationally recognized Bridges Organization,
which connects people all over the world who study relations between Mathematics
and Arts: Music, Art, Architecture, Education, and Culture.
He was the president of the organization
and they will have their nineteenth conference in August 2016 in Finland.
There is a memorial online at

Prof. Sarhangi gave a seminar on the Art of Mathematics and Interlocking
Polygons on October 18, 2012, and a workshop on Geometric Constructions of
Mosaic Design On October 19, 2012 at UNH. He was appreciated, and he will be
The Department participated in the CAS Awards Ceremony presenting awards to
Brian Dina, Mark Herde, Anthony Mastromarino, and Cassandra Pray. Congratulations are due these students.
All Girls Math Camp 2016.
The math camp for girls is a six-day summer camp whose curriculum includes seminars by University of New Haven faculty on special topics in mathematics and computer science and is hosted by Yevgeniya Rivers, Math Zone Director,
and Yasanthi Kottegoda to encourage more wowmen to consider career options
in mathematics and computer science.
For faculty advisors and students seeking advise on developmental
math courses, we provide an
online summary to help
fully understand the curriculum.
Please update your advising knowledge of these changes.
