Program Information

Degree Offered:

Ph.D.- Mathematical Sciences

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Our doctoral program is nontraditional in that all students develop a significant application of the computer to current mathematics and spend at least one semester visiting a governmental or industrial research facility prior to completing the degree. The result is a perspective of the mathematical sciences as an integrated whole with appropriate roles for both pure and applied mathematics. The required combination of course work, experience, and research enables a graduate of the program to pursue a career in either academic or non-academic settings.
