Join a Leader in Graduate Education
The Department of Mathematics is a national leader in several areas of mathematics, both pure and applied. We have active groups in continuous mathematics (control theory, dynamical systems, geometry, partial differential equations, probability, topology), discrete mathematics (algebra, combinatorics, linear programming) and computational mathematics (symbolic computation, modeling, numerical analysis, uncertainty quantification).
Our programs benefit from the depth and breadth of over sixty faculty and extend across mathematics and many application areas. Our Ph.D. program has optional computational and interdisciplinary concentrations. Our graduates are recruited for a wide range of positions including academic jobs as well as nonacademic jobs from biotechnology and finance to national security and data science.
Our faculty provide first-rate mentoring through a low student-to-faculty ratio, world class research experiences and dedication. We also offer career preparation:
- The optional university-wide Preparing the Professoriate will prepare you for a tenure-track position at a four-year college or university.
- We actively work with you to secure summer research internships in the sciences and industry.
Find the programs that is right for you in a flexible setting.
Develop expertise in graduate-level mathematics to prepare for future study or for career advancement.
Our Honors Are Adding Up
Our younger faculty have won Packard, Sloan and National Science Foundation CAREER awards, while our senior faculty include 13 Fellows from the American Mathematical Society, the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, IEEE, the Association for Computing Machinery and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
Our students are winning awards, too, including NSF Graduate Research Fellowships, National Physical Science Consortium Fellowships and a Fulbright award for postgraduate research. And our Ph.D. alumni over the past decade include winners of the NSF CAREER Award, the NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship, the Nicholas C. Metropolis Fellowship in Computational and Computer Science at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Fulbright Postdoctoral Scholar Award.
