Seminars & Colloquium

The faculty of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, in conjunction with the faculty at the other Five Colleges, support many seminars. These include both traditional seminars featuring outside speakers and seminars organized on topics of current interest to the faculty and graduate students.

In addition, the Department holds a weekly Colloquium/DLS on topics of general interest to the department. All faculty and graduate students are encouraged to attend.

Each year, the Department of Mathematics at each of Amherst College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and the University of Massachusetts Amherst hosts a Connecticut Valley Colloquium and an Undergraduate Connecticut Valley Colloquium given by distinguished visiting mathematicians.
