The Department of Mathematics at the University of North Texas provides a collaborative, open and academically stimulating climate for graduate study.
We offer instruction and research leading to Master of Arts, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Mathematics. You may follow a program of study that includes pure and applicable mathematics.
The M.A. degree prepares you to pursue a Ph.D. degree as well as for careers in college teaching, business and industry. The M.S. degree provides a deeper understanding of mathematical theory and technique for use in a wide variety of employment fields ó both academic and non-academic. The Ph.D. degree allows you to develop competence in several major areas of mathematics and to provide for intensive study and research in a specialized area.
In addition to mathematical training, we provide you opportunities to develop advanced instructional skills, including the completion of a comprehensive training course for teaching fellows focusing on all types of instructional issues. The combination of high quality mathematical training, expansive instructional training and practical teaching opportunities gives students a solid competitive edge in the modern marketplace. Our students invariably obtain mathematics-related employment in academic and non-academic settings.
Many of our faculty members have published articles in respected journals, worked as consultants for various businesses and companies, and presented research at conferences and seminars. Most of them are actively involved in research focusing on topics such as chaos and dynamical systems, combinatorics, descriptive set theory, differential equations, functional analysis, image processing and pattern recognition, logic and foundations, number theory, numerical analysis and computer methods, probability, representation theory, statistics, and topology.
Research projects and programs are routinely supported by federal and private grants. Among them is the prestigious Research Training Group grant ó one of only four such awards from the National Science Foundation. The grant supports research in areas related to logic and dynamics with an emphasis on the connection between the two fields. Our department also houses a library collection in mathematical sciences.
You are required to reach a level of mathematics equivalent to that of an undergraduate Mathematics major, including upper-division courses in algebra and advanced calculus (classical analysis) and, when possible, topology. You must also meet the admission requirements for the Toulouse Graduate School. More information on the admission requirements for the graduate school and the department is at catalog.unt.edu.
This degree requires 24 credit hours of approved course work and 6 credit hours of thesis. You may select a minor of 6 credit hours with the departmentís consent. In addition, you must demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language and take a final oral examination, which is primarily a defense of your thesis.
This degree requires 36 credit hours of approved course work. You must demonstrate a proficiency in computer programming equivalent to that acquired in a 6-credit-hour introductory course and take a final oral examination. You may select a minor of 6 credit hours with the departmentís consent, and a thesis is optional.
You need to complete approximately 72 credit hours of graduate work in mathematics beyond the bachelorís degree. About half of the courses should be 6000-level or higher. You must pass qualifying examinations in two distinct approved areas of mathematics, write a dissertation and take a final comprehensive oral examination, which is primarily a defense of the dissertation.
Almost all full-time graduate students are supported as teaching fellows or graduate student assistants. Students with fewer than 18 applicable graduate credit hours receive a stipend of $14,940 per year and generally teach the equivalent of two classes per semester. Students with at least 18 applicable graduate credit hours receive a stipend of $17,560 per nine months. Students who have achieved All But Dissertation status receive a stipend of $20,240. Teaching fellows are also eligible for summer employment teaching or working in the Math Lab.
Qualified students may be eligible for $1,000 Academic Achievement Scholarships through the Toulouse Graduate School. For information about other financial assistance programs, visit financialaid.unt.edu.
