Top Mathematics Departments Worldwide
In previous posts we’ve offered you lists of Top Political Science Departments Worldwide and Top Economics Departments in Spain, Latin America and Europe. In this post, we’re shifting our focus from the social sciences to highlight the best math departments around the globe.
Rather than simply copying a list from QS or other global rankings, however, we’ve made a handpicked list of math departments from four continents – North America, Europe, Asia and Oceana. Each of these departments falls within the top 100 worldwide according to diverse ranking systems. In the list below, you’ll find each institution grouped according to geography. If the university you are looking for is not on this list, head to INOMICS, where you’ll find hundreds of other top departments from diverse disciplines.

What kind of teacher do you want to be? Early on as an economics TA, whether inadvertently or by design you will establish what kind of teacher you are. Will your teaching style resemble that of a coach, an instructor or a taskmaster? And will you aim for an informal, friendly relationship with students or will you establish yourself an authority figure with a degree of professional distance? All this hinges on the choices you make and the actions you take during your first few weeks.
