The Department of Mathematics offers graduate programs leading to the M.A., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Mathematics with research emphasis possible in a variety of areas within pure and applied mathematics and in mathematics education. There are active Faculty Research Groups in algebra and number theory, analysis, applied mathematics (inlcuding mathematical biology), geometry and topology, mathematics education, numerical analysis, and probability. Here are individual Faculty Research Descriptions. The mathematics department also participates in an interdisciplinary program in ecosystem informatics: Ecosystem Informatics. There are also possibilities in Actuarial Science.  More information on the graduate program is available in the Graduate Handbook.

The Mathematics Department currently has about 65 graduate students. About 55 of our graduate students hold Graduate Teaching Assistantships or Fellowships. The department awards 15 to 18 new graduate assistantship appointments annually. The 2014-15 nine-month assistantship stipend for an entering graduate student is $16,040. The assistantship appointment also gives complete tuition remission, some fee reimbursement, and covers 85% of the student health insurance premium.
