The Ohio State Graduate Program in Mathematics is inviting applications to both its Ph.D. and M.M.S. degree programs. Please find below several highlights that your graduating undergraduate majors and Masters students may be interested in.
Full Stipend & Tuition Support is offered to all incoming graduate students for all degrees, either through teaching associateships or, for qualified applicants, in the form of university fellowships.
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.):
We expect to admit 15-19 students to our Ph.D.- program. The research program at our department has been invigorated by several recent faculty hires as well as special initiatives in mathematical biology, algebraic geometry, the interface of number theory and ergodic theory, and research topics combining topology, probability theory, and computation. This adds to our other strengths represented by a total of 90 faculty who are available to supervise dissertations in about every field of math. We are particularly pleased with very competitive post-doctoral job placements of many of our recent PhD graduates, including Princeton University, IAS, University of Chicago, Yale, Cal-Tech, Rutgers, University of Michigan, and top-institutions abroad. For more details see
Master of Mathematical Sciences (M.M.S.):
The M.M.S. is a two-year, terminal degree program with emphasis on practical, interdisciplinary work. Students apply to one of the specializations, in each of which they will collaborate with faculty from partner departments on summer projects and thesis research. Graduates find employment in related public and private sectors, or admission to applied doctoral programs. We plan to recruit up to 6 qualified students for each track per year.
This degree track is co-sponsored by the NSF Mathematical Biosciences Institute at OSU. Research and thesis projects are in collaboration, among others, with the OSU departments of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology, Molecular Genetics, and Microbiology, as well as various research units of the OSU Medical School. For more details see http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/mms/bio
Mathematics for Educators: This degree track serves students with interest in the teaching and, more broadly, the communication of mathematics. The curriculum emphasizes a thorough background in core areas of mathematics as well as courses specially designed in collaboration with the OSU Department of Education and Human Ecology . For more information see http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/mms/edu
This specialization represents the third track in our M.M.S. degree program, and provides the mathematical training and background in related fields required in a wide range of computational applications. Interdisciplinary practical projects and theses are designed and carried out in collaborations with the numerous engineering and physical science departments on campus. More detailed information about the program can be found at http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/mms/cps
Future plans include a Master of Quantitative Risk Management, expected to start in 2014. Detailed information and instructions regarding applications can be found at http://www.math.ohio-state.edu/apply
For full consideration please submit complete applications by December 26th , 2012 .
