Balikesir University, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Department of Mathematics was established in 1993-1994 academic year. Beside day and night graduate education, post-graduate and doctoral programs are also available. Our academic staff consists of 7 Professors, 5 Associate Professors, 6 Assistant Professors and 4 Research Assistants. Large number of researches, which are qualified nationally and internationally, are carried out by academic staff members in following branches:

- Algebra and Number Theory
- Geometry
- Fundamentals of Mathematics and Mathematical Logic
- Topology
- Applied Mathematics
- Analysis and Function Theory

In Web of Science database, there are 158 articles of our academic staff members between the years 2000 and 2015. At the same time, the necessary support for Mathematics is provided for graduate and post-graduate level students in various departments of our university. In our department, 444 graduate and 73 post-graduate students are receiving education.

In graduate education, our first priority is to equip our students with a high level of mathematical knowledge and make them gain the the ability of understanding and ratiocinating information with different type of content in the light of their Mathematical thinking capability. Thus, our aim is to become a department which educates individuals to perform their profession in the best way besides abstract thinking and Mathematical analysis. In post-graduate education, our primary objective is to make our students have the ability of independent study and research. So we educate and encourage our students to contribute to scientific progress in national and international communities by doing top level scientific research.
