The Department of Mathematics at University of Florida offers the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Science and Master of Arts, and the Master of Arts in Teaching and Master of Science in Teaching, each with a major in mathematics


There are opportunities for concentrated study in a number of specific areas of pure and applied mathematics at both the master’s and doctoral levels. The faculty directs studies and research in algebra, number theory, analysis, geometry, topology, logic, differential equations, dynamical systems, probability theory, numerical analysis, numerical optimization, approximation theory, combinatorial analysis, graph theory, computer applications, biomathematics, mathematical physics, inverse problems, and medical imaging.

Key facts:

  • In addition to the requirements of the Graduate School, the minimum prerequisite for admission to the program of graduate studies in mathematics is the completion, with an average grade of B or better, of at least 24 credits of undergraduate mathematics, including a full year of calculus and three semesters of appropriate work beyond the calculus. The most appropriate courses for this purpose are advanced calculus, linear algebra and abstract algebra. Students lacking part of the requirements will be required to make up the deficiency early in their graduate work.
  • Students pursuing the master’s degree in Mathematics at University of Florida must pass two comprehensive written examinations, one in algebra and one in analysis or prepare and provide an oral defense of a thesis on original research conducted under the supervision of a faculty adviser. Students pursuing the Master of Arts in Teaching or the Master of Science in Teaching degree must prepare a teaching portfolio and pass an oral examination. Each of these programs normally requires two years for completion.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • A recognized baccalaureate, graduate or professional degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or a comparable degree from an international institution.
  • For applicants with a bachelor’s degree only, a minimum grade point average of B (3.0), calculated from all grades and credits after the semester where the applicant reached 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours is required. Applicants should refer directly to their intended academic units for Graduate Record  Examination (GRE) or Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) requirements. If required, academic test scores are used in the context of a holistic credential review process.
