A City College graduate, and later Mathematics Professor, Jesse Douglas, was a recipient of the first Fields Medal in Mathematics -- regarded by the profession as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize. Nobel Laureates Herbert Hauptman in chemistry, Kenneth Arrow and most recently Robert Aumann in economics, were former City College math majors who received their Nobel prizes for highly mathematical work.
Indeed, dozens of our graduates, having received a rigorous and inspiring education from the College, have achieved recognition as world leaders in all fields touched by mathematics. Hundreds of others have become mathematics educators, business executives, and respected faculty in colleges and universities throughout the country.
City math students study with an outstanding group of dedicated faculty, many of whom are internationally renowned mathematicians, and may choose to pursue bachelor and Master of Science degrees in mathematics.
