The emphasisat Wesleyan is in pure mathematics and theoretical computer science,and most Wesleyan Ph.D. recipients have chosen academic careers uponcompletion of their studies. In addition to its strengths in traditionalareas of mathematics (algebra, analysis and topology), the departmenthas an active research presence in theoretical computer science, logic,and discrete mathematics. Students who do doctoral work in these fieldsbenefit from the interactions between the mathematics and computerscience research groups in the department

The Ph.D. degree demands breadth of knowledge, intensive specialization inone field, original contribution to that field, and expository skill. Eachstudent's program of study is reviewed by the department's Graduate Education Committee (GRECO)一道本不卡免费高清. First-year courses are designed to provide a foundationin the following areas: algebra, analysis, and topology. Writtenpreliminary examinations are normally taken in the summer after the firstyear. During the second year, the student continues with a variety ofcourses, sampling areas of possible concentration. The student must obtain a thesisadvisor by the end of the second year and pass the special preliminary examination, which is an oral exam managed by the student's advisorand examination committee, by the end of the third year. Also required is the ability to read technical literature in at least two of the following languages: French,German, and Russian. The usual time for completion of all requirementsfor a Ph.D., including the dissertation, is five years.

After passing the preliminary examinations, most Ph.D. candidates teachone course per year, typically a section of size 20, supervised by seniorfaculty.

The M.A. degree is designed to ensure basic knowledge and the capacityfor sustained scholarly study. The requirements are six semestercourses at the graduate level and the writing and oral presentation ofa thesis. The Master's thesis requires an independent search and studyof the literature, and may be original work.

Students are involved in departmental activities including seminars andcolloquia. The small size of the program contributes to an atmosphereof informality and accessibility. There is a tradition of graduatestudents running their own lunchtime seminar, attended by graduate andundergraduate students .
