The Department of Mathematics has awarded over 210 Ph.D degrees since 1954, and 93 Ph.D. since 1987 -- an average of about 6 per year. Most former students hold positions in state and private universities, and several hold non-academic positions. The thesis topic, advisor, first position, and most recent position are listed below.
In a recent study of the National Research Council (Chronicle of Higher Education, September 22, 1995) we ranked 36th out of 139 US Math departments in the quality of our faculty and the effectiveness of our Ph.D. program. Applicants come from abroad and across the nation.
