Welcome to the website of the Department of Mathematics at Rhodes University. This website has been designed to provide you with information on the courses offered in the department and to acquaint you with the various activities in which the department is involved. We hope and trust that you will find this website useful and informative.
Our department consists of 9 fulltime academic staff members and one support staff member. These caring, committed and dedicated staff members are a key asset to the department. They take a personal interest in the development and success of every student. The greatest advantage of a small department in a small university is that staff members are able to give individual attention to students. In our department every student is a person with a name and a face; not just a number!
The department is committed to the highest standards of excellence in teaching, scholarship and community outreach. We offer excellent undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Mathematics and Applied Mathematics. The postgraduate courses reflect the available expertise and research activities undertaken in the department.
