The Doctor of Philosophy degree in mathematical sciences is a nontraditional program in which students develop current mathematic applications on the computer and spend at least one semester visiting a governmental or industrial research facility prior to degree completion. Students have access to the traditional areas of doctoral work while developing a perspective of the mathematical sciences as an integrated whole with appropriate roles for both pure and applied mathematics allowing them to pursue a career in either academic or non-academic settings.
