Message from the Department Head

Purdue's graduate mathematics program is one of the largest in the country — and one of the best. Recent changes in the graduate program were aimed at improving opportunities for our students to develop in areas that suit their goals. We invite prospective students to visit to meet faculty and current students and to see first hand what Purdue has to offer.

Apply to the Department of Mathematics

Almost all of our graduate students have financial assistance in the form of Teaching Assistantships or Fellowships, awarded on a competitive basis. Purdue University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer. Women and minority students are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications are only accepted for students starting in the fall semester. No students are admitted for the spring semester.

Note:  The Department of Mathematics rarely admits students from outside Purdue to our MS program.  We encourage those considering our MS program to consider applying to our PhD program instead.
