We offer a traditional master's degree and doctoral degree in both mathematics and statistics. Students interested in working in the areas of algebra, analysis, geometry/topology, statistics, and application of mathematics will find excellent faculty and research groups in which to participate. At any given time, we train over 40 doctoral and 20 master's students, as well as several visiting graduate students from all over the world.
Our graduate programs are designed to give our students a broad perspective in advanced mathematics through a solid foundation of fundamental courses. With numerous standard and special topics graduate courses offered each fall and spring semester, not to mention numerous seminars and colloquia, there is always something of interest for everyone.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a comprehensive doctoral program in mathematics and a doctoral program in statistics. The completion of the doctoral degree requires about five years of full-time study, and virtually all students receive full financial support (stipends and tuition waiver) during their study.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a master's degree in both mathematics and statistics. Master's students do not receive any financial support, and the completion of the degree requires one to two years depending on the course load.
