Opportunities for supervised research are available in a variety of areas involving pure and applied mathematics, and statistics.

Students who graduate with degrees in mathematics are flexible and adaptable in the workplace and readily obtain jobs with high-technology companies and in business, industry, government and education. Salaries and working conditions are comparable with those of engineers and computer scientists.


Faculty and students actively pursue both basic and applied research in mathematics from traditional areas of algebra, analysis, topology, statistics, probability and foundations to new and applied topics such as chaos theory, dynamical systems, image processing and stochastic differential equations.

Faculty research is supported by federal and private grants. Many of these grants provide research support for graduate students.

The library collection in the mathematical sciences is one of the nation’s finest, with more than 18,000 volumes, and many are available electronically.


All graduate students will consult with the graduate advisor regarding a program of study. Graduate students are evaluated annually regarding progress toward graduation. Those not making satisfactory progress will be dismissed from the mathematics program. Appeals for reinstatement may be made to the department’s graduate affairs committee.

Admission requirements

Application for admission to the Toulouse Graduate School is made through the office of the dean of the Graduate School. The applicant should have the equivalent of an undergraduate major in mathematics at UNT. Deficiencies in this respect will be evaluated and must be remedied as a condition of final admission. A GRE or GMAT score is required. Contact the department or the Toulouse Graduate School concerning information about standardized admission test requirements.

Scholarships and financial support

Graduate students usually support their study by working as teaching fellows for the department. Teaching fellows are paid competitive stipends.

Work also is available as a teaching assistant, math lab tutor or grader. The department has funds available for research assistants.

Contact the graduate advisor for complete details and for information about financial support.
