Earlier Mathematics was taught as a B.A. or a B.Sc. Honours programme. From the academic session 2009-2010, the course has been remodelled as B.Sc. Honours Mathematics, an integrated programme. It enables students to be equipped with the emerging requirements of today's world, to be trained in real world applications through Mathematical Modelling and to acquire computer skills in various fields of Mathematics including applications.
Mathematical techniques have been gaining popularity in pure sciences as well as in social sciences. The precision of mathematical language has also made it possible to explore large areas of research. Today, Mathematics is probably the most convenient shoulder to lean on not only for the Sciences but also for subjects like Commerce, Economics etc. Facilities of a fully equipped modern Computer Laboratory are also available to the students of the Department of Mathematics in Miranda House.
With the options of Computers, Discrete Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, Statistics, Linear Programming and Numerical Methods offered in the third year, our students are able to compete successfully in entrance exams for M.C.A., M.B.A., and M.Sc. in different universities. Each year, some of our students get admission and financial assistance for postgraduate courses in prestigious universities in the U.S.A, U.K. and the IITs.
