As soon as students have taken a few preparatory courses and have chosen an advisor, they may begin their mathematical research.

We encourage our more advanced students to become active in mathematical research, to attend interdisciplinary seminars, and the department's weekly colloquia/seminars that bring in visiting scholars from a broad range of research interests. Our students are also encouraged to organize their own graduate seminars.

Our students interact one-to-one with their advisors, and it is not unusual for Ph.D. students to publish research articles before graduating.

We also encourage and support our students to attend national meetings, conferences and workshops.  We are able to provide limited support for participation at some international conferences.

The page Research Areas has a list of the fields of interest of our faculty and links to several research groups. A list of the weekly talks can be found at the Seminars and Colloquia page.
