Mathematics is the common language for all the sciences.
It probes behind outward physical appearances to grasp the inner meaning of natural and social phenomena and deepens our understanding of complex phenomena.
In 1981, Keio University established the Department of Mathematics with the broad goal of contributing to the progress of mathematics, and with a special emphasis on "mathematical sciences," the boundary areas between mathematics, sciences and economics.
The research specialties of the graduate program in Mathematics cover several areas in pure and applied mathematics and statistics, giving students the opportunity to work towards masters or doctoral degrees under close supervision. This distinctive feature of our department allows staff and students alike to experience being a part of the universal activity of mathematics, a pinnacle of human achievement.
