Graduate Program

Current grad students show just how cool math can be!

The University of Montana's Department of Mathematical Sciences offers both masters and doctoral degrees. As a compact department with diverse interests, we have a well-rounded program and considerable interaction among faculty and students.

Our regular (Option 1) Ph.D. program offers research training in algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, combinatorics & optimization, and computer science.

Our non-traditional (Option 2) Ph.D. program has given the department a national identity. It emphasizes greater breadth in course work and less specialization than in the regular program. An emphasis in mathematics education is available under this option.

Our graduates take positions in academia, governments and business in the USA and around the world.
