Graduate Program

The Mathematics Department at UC Santa Cruz offers programs leading to the Master of Arts (M.A.) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Students admitted to the Ph.D. program may receive a master's degree en route to the doctorate. Students admitted to the M.A. program may apply to the department to transfer to the Ph.D. program upon passing the required preliminary examinations at the Ph.D. level.

The Department is small but dynamic, with an ongoing commitment to both research and teaching. We have leading research programs in several actively developing areas.
