Welcome to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics, the center of applied mathematics research and education at Johns Hopkins University.
Our faculty advance the art of mathematics, inspired by problems arising in engineering and the physical, biological, information, and social sciences. Our graduate and undergraduate programs train future mathematical scientists in the use of probability, statistics, optimization, discrete mathematics, and numerical analysis, through our academic programs and the many research opportunities they can enjoy. Our students graduate prepared for professional success and are working in fields ranging from finance, medicine, and academia to entrepreneurial ventures. As mathematics is central to all aspects of engineering and science, many students from other departments enroll in our courses and choose to double-major in AMS.
While we hope you find the information you need on our website, we also encourage you to visit us on campus, too, and learn more about the Johns Hopkins experience, meet our students, and enjoy our beautiful campus, and experience Baltimore’s vibrancy and diversity.
We look forward to seeing you.
Department Head and Professor
