Courses offered by the Department of Mathematics are designed to satisfy the needs of majors and non majors interested in mathematics primarily as part of a broad liberal education. They provide basic mathematical and statistical training for students in the social, biological, and physical sciences and in the professional schools; prepare teachers of mathematics; and provide advanced and graduate work for students specializing in the field. To be admitted to the pre-PhD program, an entering graduate student must have completed a course of study equivalent to the graduate preparatory bachelor’s degree program described above. Other students are placed in the master’s degree program and may apply for admission to the pre-PhD program following a year of graduate study. Students in the pre-PhD program must take the qualifying examination by the beginning of their third year, during the week before classes begin fall term. It consists of examinations on two basic 600-level graduate course sequences, one each from two of the following three categories: algebra; analysis and probability; topology and geometry.
