Ph.D. PROGRAM IN MATHEMATICS
Once a supervisor has been chosen, a supervisory committee is formed. This committee consists of two or three additional faculty members. The committee meets with the student annually to chart progress toward the degree.
The course requirement for Ph.D. students is a minimum of two one-term graduate courses beyond the Master's degree. This requirement is normally completed in the first year of study. Courses are chosen in consultation with the mathematics graduate advisor and/or the supervisory committee.
All Ph.D. students must pass the comprehensive exam requirement, which consists of a preliminary exam and an oral exam.
More information on Ph.D. requirements can be found in the Guidelines for Ph.D. Math Students.
