Mathematics PhD Program



The Mathematics PhD program is our primary graduate program and involves students in a range of pure and applied mathematics fields while providing financial support. They learn to carry out original research and explain their results effectively in both presentations and written articles.

Topics include algebra, algebraic geometry and commutative algebra, complex analysis, computational mathematics, differential geometry, logic, mathematical physics, partial differential equations and topology. Some students conduct interdisciplinary work and receive joint PhDs in, for example, Mathematics and Philosophy, or Chemical Engineering and Mathematics.

Masters degrees are available for PhD candidates who have taken 30 credit hours and passed their candidacy examinations. We offer a Master of Science in Applied Mathematics, usually for students in other PhD programs.
