Graduate Study

The department offers programs leading to the Ph.D. in Mathematics, Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, the M.S. in Mathematics, M.S. in Applied Mathematics and the Master of School Mathematics.

We also participate in interdisciplinary programs in Information Assurance, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Human Computer Interaction and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

All the graduate programs have considerable flexibility to suit individual needs. The faculty has especially strong, active research groups in partial differential equations, applied mathematics, stochastic processes, functional analysis, combinatorics, algebra, control theory, and mathematical biology.

Graduate Program Learning Goals:

Applied Mathematics

  • Master core areas of Applied Mathematics (MS, PhD)
  • Achieve in-depth knowledge in a chosen subfield of Applied Mathematics (PhD)
  • Perform original research in a chosen subfield that advances Applied Mathematics (PhD)
  • Demonstrate ability to effectively communicate mathematical concepts and research results (MS, PhD)
