Each unit offers programs at both the master’s (MMath) and doctoral (PhD) levels. The graduate programs have two major goals based on the belief that a strong foundation in mathematics, both theoretical and computational, is essential for achieving these goals:

  • to prepare students for a career in research and teaching in an academic institution,
  • to provide students with the analytical skills and intellectual discipline needed to formulate and solve problems in the changing environments of industry, business and government.

In addition to department/school-based MMath and PhD programs, we offer interdisciplinary and course-based professional master’s programs:
