Graduate Programs

Mark Steinberger, Director


The Department offers graduate programs leading to Masters and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Mathematics. The Masters program includes Secondary School Teaching sequence and a Statistics sequence.

The Department consists of 24 faculty members, a number of visiting faculty, with about 40 master students and 30 doctoral students. We form a warm, family-like mathematical community. There is a lively schedule of research seminars and a graduate student seminar each week. About 15 percent of the students are international students and about 30 percent of the students are women.
