Programs Offered

Master's Degree

Doctoral Degree

PhD Program

The Department of Mathematics offers coursework and research leading to the PhD degree in mathematics. The department has a diversified graduate faculty with current areas of research in algebra, classical analysis, differential equations, geometry, harmonic analysis, logic and foundations, number theory, probability and stochastic processes and topology. For more information, see the Department of Mathematics website.

MA/MS Program

Students may obtain an MA/MS degree as either an undergraduate student through the bachelor's-accelerated master's degree program or as a graduate student. 

As a rule, graduate students are admitted to the PhD program in mathematics and earn an MA or MS when they complete their PhD comprehensive exam. Students may choose to leave the program with MA/MS degree. Under certain circumstances, students can be admitted to the graduate program for a terminal MA/MS degree, in which case the prerequisites are the same as for the doctoral program.

Course code for this program is MATH.

Faculty

While many faculty teach both undergraduate and graduate students, some instruct students at the undergraduate level only. For more information, contact the faculty member's home department.
