The Department of Mathematics is now one of the largest departments at UOB. It has 26faculty members with a PhD from different European and American Universities.

The department has two B. Sc. Programs. one in Mathematics and the other in Statistics and Operational Research. The students of our department have a variety of programs. They can either pursue a single track program in Mathematics, single track in Statistics or to take Mathematics or Statistics as majors with minors from Chemistry, Physics, Statistics, Computer Science or Biology. Hundreds of mathematically qualified students graduated successfully from the department since its establishment. Now, they are serving the society, either as teachers in schools for all grades or employees in fields related to Mathematics.

Furthermore, our Department had a Master program in pure and applied Mathematics where many students graduated.

In addition, the Department of Mathematics serves all the colleges at the University of Bahrain (Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Arts, Applied Studies, and Business Administration).

The Department of Mathematics programs follow the standards of reputable universities, and also our graduates proved their competencies while completing their PhD in different worldwide universities. Despite that, the department is now seeking for international accreditation for all its B. Sc. programs.

Our graduates have career opportunities in banking, insurance companies as well as teaching.
