The University of Connecticut campus at Storrs is the major public institution of higher education in the state of Connecticut. Additionally, the University has been rated as the top public university in New England by national publications. We have a relatively small and selective graduate program. We usually have about 300 well-qualified applicants, and offer admission to fewer than 20%. As a medium-sized state university, we offer more individualized and personal attention to students than is common at larger institutions.
The Mathematics Department maintains a strong commitment to research in both pure and applied mathematics. Our graduate faculty are involved in several interdisciplinary activities, which include: the Virtual Cell Project at the UConn Health Center, the UConn Logic Group, joint work with the departments of Computer Science and Engineering,Physics, Statistics, Marine Sciences, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and the School of Education (in particular the Teachers for a New Era initiative). In addition to the faculty here, our graduate students benefit substantially from the presence of Postdoctoal Fellows and Visiting Assistant Professors in the department. There are regularly scheduled seminars across different areas of research in the department and support networks for our graduate students include TA Program (the official mathematics department support site for Teaching Assistants), TA Network, S.I.G.M.A and the Noetherian Ring.
Since the University lies at the geographic center for the most active intellectual, cultural and recreational centers in the country, the opportunities for study and recreation are vast. Seminars with participants from The University of Connecticut and Boston University, Brown, MIT, Tufts, UMass Amherst, Wesleyan, WPI, and Yale meet on a regular basis.
- Students may mix these options or request a substitution of one other graduate mathematics course for one of the above courses. The philosophy of these options is that the Department wants its students to be knowledgeable in the basic mathematical subjects in the student’s area of study. Therefore, substitution of a course will only be permitted if that course is critical to the student’s plan of study. The substitution must be approved by the Graduate Program Committee and the student’s advisor.
