PhD in Mathematical Sciences

Application Procedure and Deadline, Admission Requirements, Program Description

The PhD in Mathematical Sciences prepares students for careers in academia and as professional mathematicians and statisticians. Students have the opportunity to work with some of the world's leading experts in a variety of research areas. The Department has particular strength in the interrelated fields of analysis, partial differential equations, and probability. Students interested in more applied directions can work with experts in statistics, mathematical bioscience, computational finance, and cryptography.

Application Procedure and Deadline

To submit an electronic application for the PhD in Mathematical Sciences, please visit our Online Graduate School Application and complete the form. The application deadline is February 1st for Decision Round 1 and April 1st for Decision Round 2.

Financial Aid: Students who do not have government or other external sponsorship are generally offered a Graduate Assistantship (GA) with a University Graduate Scholarship (UGS) which cover most of the students' tuition and fees. The GA and UGS are renewable for up to six years for students entering with a bachelor's degree and up to five years for students entering with a master's degree. A variety of fellowships and research grants are also available. Applicants who do not need financial support should make this clear on their application since the competition for GAs is more intense than that for admission only. Applicants wishing to be considered for financial aid should complete their applications by the February 1 deadline.
