Graduate: PhD Program
The PhD Program
This program is no longer accepting new students. Please explore UNCG’s other academic programs.
In 2008, UNCG became the only university in the North Carolina system to offer a PhD in Computational Mathematics. Following the advent of the computer, computational mathematics has emerged as an exciting and rapidly growing area mathematical sciences.
Our Computational Mathematics program combines the beauty of mathematics and statistics with the power of modern computing.
*Students can strengthen their degree by concurrently earning an MA in mathematics, an MS in applied statistics, or a doctoral minor in statistics.
SLO 1: Broad Understanding
Students demonstrate broad understanding by reproducing results and definitions at the introductory Ph.D. level.
SLO 2: In Depth Study
Students discover new results and defend these results in a specific area of computational mathematics that goes beyond the introductory PhD level.
SLO 3: Synthesis and Written Communication
Students combine their knowledge from graduate course work, individual readings, and their own original research and communicate this research and its significance in writing.
SLO 4: Oral Communication
Students defend their research findings orally.
