Graduate Programs

Explore our Graduate Program

The American Mathematical Society has ranked our graduate program in the top group of U.S. research departments. The department has distinguished research groups in algebra, analysis, topology, geometry, combinatorics, probability, number theory, and mathematical biology. We are large enough to provide the quality and breadth required for a major research department, yet small enough so that graduate students have close interactions with the faculty.
