The Mathematics program is offered by University of Arizona.

To be admitted, applicants must have completed the equivalent of an undergraduate major in mathematics with at least 15 units of upper-division or higher level work including one semester each of advanced analysis at the level of Math 425A, abstract algebra at the level of Math 415A, and linear algebra at the level of Math 413. Applicants are asked to submit scores on the Graduate Record Examination, including the subject Examination in Mathematics.


The faculty of the Department of Mathematics carries on research (and research seminars) in a variety of purely mathematical and interdisciplinary fields. In algebra and number theory, research includes group theory, rings and modules, algebraic number theory, representation theory, and primality testing.

Research in analysis is being carried out on unbounded operators, quantum field theory, integrable systems, dynamical systems, and nonlinear problems of ecology, chemistry, and fluid dynamics. In geometry, there is work on algebraic geometry, moduli spaces, symplectic geometry, and Lie theory. In probability and statistics, projects involve reliability theory, stochastic processes, statistical inference, and nonparametric inference.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​

Study Content

Concentrations are available in pure, applied, or computer mathematics, in mathematics education, or in probability and statistics. As there are no sharp boundaries between these concentrations, students are encouraged to pursue a broad range of mathematical topics. Programs are planned in consultation with faculty advisers.
