Graduate Program

The Department of Mathematics offers programs leading to the Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematical Sciences, the Master of Sciences and the Master of Arts degrees. The graduate Program is designed to produce mathematicians who are highly qualified to enter professions in academia and the industrial and governmental sectors.
Candidates for the M.S. degree may elect thesis or thesis-substitutes. These options require a minimum of 30 or 33 hours of course work respectively.
Candidates for the Ph.D. degree are expected to demonstrate knowledge by passing a comprehensive examination in mathematics. Ph.D. candidates must also write and successfully defend a dissertation that represents significant original research. There are 2 routes to obtain the Ph.D: one is to obtain the M.S. degree first and then enter Ph.D. program, while the other is to enter the Ph.D. program directly with a B.S. degree (so called B.S.-Ph.D. track).
