The Department of Mathematics at the University of North Texas provides a collaborative, open and academically stimulating climate for graduate study.
We offer instruction and research leading to Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Science and Master of Arts degrees in Mathematics. You may follow a program of study that includes pure and applicable mathematics.
The Ph.D. degree allows you to develop competence in several major areas of mathematics and prepares you for intensive study and research in a specialized area. The M.S. degree provides a deeper understanding of mathematical theory and technique for use in a wide variety of academic and non-academic careers. The M.A. degree prepares you to pursue a Ph.D. degree and for careers in college teaching, business and industry.
In addition to mathematical training, you'll have opportunities to develop advanced instructional skills. These opportunities include a comprehensive training course for teaching fellows focusing on all types of instructional issues.
The combination of high quality mathematical training, expansive instructional training and practical teaching opportunities gives students a competitive edge in the marketplace. Our students invariably obtain mathematics-related employment in academic and non-academic settings.
Many of our faculty members have published articles in respected journals, worked as consultants for various businesses and companies, and presented research at conferences and seminars. Most of them are involved in research ranging from chaos and dynamical systems to topology.
Research projects and programs are routinely supported by federal and private grants. For example, the prestigious Research Training Group grant supports research related to logic and dynamics with an emphasis on the connection between the two fields. Our department also houses a library collection in mathematical sciences.
