Graduate Program & Resources

In addition to our graduate courses each semester, the department has a regular colloquium series, runs many seminars and often hosts conferences. The department provides a friendly environment with a strong interaction between graduate students and faculty. All of the faculty have active research programs, many with international visibility. Some have been recipients of prestigious awards of major mathematical societies. Many faculty have been awarded federal research grants, and some have been named as Fellows of major scientific societies. The high level of research activity of our faculty provides many opportunities for graduate students.

The Department faculty have research interests including analysis, applied mathematics, combinatorics, dynamical systems, graph theory, ergodic theory, partial differential equations and applied statistics. Mathematics graduate students can go on to do advanced work in any of the fields represented by the Department's faculty. With an active research program, the Department of Mathematics has several weekly seminars in core areas of pure and applied mathematics, colloquium series and annual conferences. The Master's and Ph.D. programs provide courses in various areas of mathematics. Ph.D. students then write a dissertation featuring original research under the direction of one of the Department's faculty. The Master's program normally takes two years to complete, while the Ph.D. usually requires five years.

The Graduate Program is overseen by the graduate programs director Fernanda Botelho, with the assistance of Vickie Middleton.
