Ph.D. in Mathematics

Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics

The TCU Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in mathematics is designed for students who desire to do original research in pure mathematics and who desire to teach at the college/university level. After each doctoral student acquires a strong mathematical foundation in algebra, real and complex analysis, and topology, that student concentrates on one of the research specialties of the TCU mathematics faculty. These fields of mathematics include real and complex analysis, harmonic analysis, functional analysis, algebraic geometry, differential geometry, number theory, topology, global analysis, representation theory, operator algebras, and K-theory. Award-winning professors, faculty expertise in a wide range of research areas, and abundant opportunities for one-to-one student-to-faculty interaction characterize our program.
