The School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science in Mathematics and Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics. Both programs are designed to provide the student with a broad perspective in advanced mathematics and its applications. To this end each program stresses a solid foundation in graduate-level mathematics as well as an exposure to the use of mathematics in other disciplines.
After completing introductory graduate courses in such areas as real analysis and Hilbert Space Theory, students in the master's degree program choose an area of concentration within mathematics, and also enroll in courses in another School of the Institute. Doctoral students, in addition to taking courses to prepare themselves for research in their chosen areas of mathematics, complete a minor program taken entirely outside the School of Mathematics in a discipline which relies heavily on mathematics. The doctoral dissertation consists of original research in one of the research specialties of the School.
Additionally, the School of Mathematics participates with other Schools on campus in three interdisciplinary doctoral programs: 1) Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization, 2) Bioinformatics, and 3) Computational Science and Engineering, and three interdisciplinary master's programs, 1) Computational Science and Engineering, 2) Quantitative and Computational Finance and 3) Statistics. These programs have their own admission and course requirements and are administered by interdepartmental committees. Students must be admitted to these programs through a participating Georgia Tech Unit.
