The Florida State University Financial Mathematics graduate program offers studies leading to the MS and PhD degrees in Mathematics, with a special focus on the mathematics of finance and economics. We invite applications from students with a strong mathematics background (see Prerequisites) to join our interdisciplinary program.


The name Financial Mathematics means that we focus on the rigorous mathematical understanding of quantitative methods underlying financial problems. The Florida State University MS students share core courses with our beginning PhD students (see the MS and PhD pages for more details), andwe are also one of the few mathematics programs in the US offering a PhD specifically in Financial Mathematics.


  • Thirteen Mathematics faculty members support the program, along with faculty from Statistics, Economics, Finance, Scientific Computing, Computer Science, and Risk Management.
  • Graduates of the program find employment as financial quants in industry and government, as actuaries, and in academia (see the alumni page).
