The department of Mathematics offers graduate courses leading to Ph.D. degree in Mathematics. The department emphasizes both pure and applied mathematics. Research in the department covers algebra, algebraic geometry, number theory, functional analysis, differential geometry, differential equations, combinatorics, topology, biomathematics, statistics, probability, stochastic analysis and mathematical physics. In addition to the following courses, students in this program can take any of the courses listed under the “M.S. in Mathematics” program or from other courses not listed here in accordance with their areas of specialization and subject to the approval of their advisors.
Students can apply to the Ph.D. programs with a B.S. or M.S. degree. The Ph.D. degree requires successful completion of 14 courses within 3 years and take the Qualifying Examination within 7th semester at latest beyond the B.S. degree and 7 courses within 2 years and take the Qualifying Examination within 5th semester at latest beyond the M.S. degree. In addition to the credit courses, students must complete the non-credit courses; MATH 590 Seminar, ENGL 500 Graduate Writing and TEAC 500 Teaching Experience.
The requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics are as follows.
The master program in Mathematics consists of a) at least 21 credit hours of course work, b) a master thesis and c) graduate seminar course. All students have to take
The total credit of these required courses is 8. In addition to these courses students have to take two sequence courses among the courses in areas listed below as a) to g), such as Math 531-532, Math 521-522, etc… These courses are not allowed to be 400 level courses. The areas are;
To complete the credit requirements the courses may be chosen among courses offered by the department of Mathematics and the other departments of the Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering. At most 2 of the elective courses can be 400 level undergraduate courses. The choice of courses must be approved by the student’s graduate advisor.
Students who have TA assignments must take TEAC 500: Teaching Experience during the semesters of their assignments. Students must also take ENGL 500: Graduate Writing course.
