The Ph.D. qualifying examination in Mathematics is a written examination in two parts. Part 1 covers roughly the material presented in the core course Mth 511, Real Analysis, while Part 2 covers roughly the material in Mth 543, Abstract Linear Algebra. The qualifying exam is given twice each year, near the beginning of Fall and Spring terms. The two parts of the exam are usually given one or more days apart. A student may take each part of the PhD qualifying examination a maximum of three times, with additional one free attempt before a student's first term in the program. To advance, a student must pass both parts, but they do not need to be passed at the same time. A student must have passed both exams by the end of the spring term of student’s second year of study.
Questions about the qualifying exam can be directed to the Chair of the Qualifying Examination Committee.
