Degree Types: PhD

The Graduate Program in the Department of Mathematics aims to develop students into productive research mathematicians. The extremely low student-faculty ratio, less than two-to-one, allows for close relationships between students and faculty.

Department research strengths include algebra, algebraic topology, classical and modern analysis, dynamical systems, mathematical physics, partial differential equations, probability and representation theory. 

The department maintains close ties with the larger community of mathematicians at Northwestern University
