Program Description:

Brandeis University's Department of Mathematics combines the informality and flexibility of a small department with the intellectual vigor of a faculty whose research accomplishments have placed it among the top departments in the country. Courses and seminars range from introductory classes to the frontiers of current research. The result is an active dialogue among all members of the department and a general air of living, creative mathematics.

Our coursework gives students a broad foundation in modern pure mathematics. An essential part of the program consists of seminars on a variety of topics of current interest in which mathematicians from greater Boston often participate. In addition, the Brandeis-Harvard-MIT-Northeastern Mathematics Colloquium gives the student an opportunity to hear the current work of eminent mathematicians from all over the world. 

In addition to our Ph.D. and M.A. programs, we offer a post-baccalaureate program which is ideal for students with a bachelor's degree in any field who would like further study in mathematics, but who do not have enough preparation for our master's program.

Generous scholarships and fellowships are available. Successful applicants to the Ph.D. programs are offered full tuition waivers, a stipend, and health insurance allowance. Most of our master’s students receive generous scholarships in the form of merit- and need-based aid.

We encourage you to learn more about our programs, located just outside of Boston with its world-renowned academic resources -- an ideal location for internships, research, and career opportunities. As part of the Boston Area Graduate Consortium, Brandeis students are welcome to take advantage of the curricular opportunities at several area schools.
