The UCF Math graduate program focuses on contemporary areas of applied mathematics and traditional areas of core mathematics. We have offered the PhD program in Mathematics since Fall 1993 with the Financial Mathematics track added in Fall 2017, the Master program in Mathematics  since Spring 1971 with the Industrial Mathematics track added in Fall 2000 and the Financial Mathematics track added in Fall 2017, and the Graduate Certificates in Mathematical Sciences since Fall 2009 with  the financial mathematics track and the data modeling track added in Fall 2020. The program has  awarded 93 PhD, 388 Master degrees and 27 Mathematical Science Certificates since 1971. The program currently has 53 active PhD and 17 master students with 57 GTA/GRAs (Spring 2022). Basic facts and brief description of the program can be found in the facts website, the graduate program poster and also in  the UCF Math Graduate Brochure.

The doctoral program prepares students for positions working in research-level mathematics in academics and industry.  The  master program provides a broad base in mathematics for students interested in mathematical careers.  The graduate certificate program is designed for future teachers of college-level mathematics.

The faculty in the program are dedicated to the graduate education and many of them are recognized as outstanding scholars. Our faculty members include an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematics,  a Marcus Wallenberg Prize winner, Fellows of the American Mathematical Society, and a National Science Foundation Career awardee. Many faculty members conduct interdisciplinary research and supervise graduate students in other departments, research institutes and centers within the university.

Students in the program can specialize in many areas of pure, applied, computational and financial mathematics, including Approximation Theory, Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis, Big Data and Mathematical Statistics, Combinatorics and Graph Theory, Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry, Control and Optimization, Differential and Symplectic Geometry, Differential Equations, Fluid and Plasma Dynamics,  Free Boundary Problems,  Inverse and Ill-posed Problems, Mathematical Biology, Mathematical Finance,  Nonlinear Dynamics, Numerical Analysis, Orthogonal Polynomials, Real and Functional Analysis,  Probability and Stochastic Analysis, Tomography and Medical Imaging and Topology.

Students in the program have opportunities to interact with other departments and institutions on campus, and also local industries like Lockheed Martin, N.A.S.A., Siemens and Harris Corporation.
Our graduates regularly go on to successful positions in academics, government and industry.

UCF Math Department has been a silver member of  Math Alliance from 2017. The math graduate program promotes diversity and inclusion in academia.  All underrepresented or under served American student with the talent and the ambition are encouraged to apply for the UCF math graduate program and to earn a doctoral/master degree in a mathematical science.
