Mathematics

项目介绍

The graduate Mathematics Program at Harvard is designed for students who hope to become research mathematicians and show definite promise in this direction. Once the student has demonstrated a command of basic mathematical concepts by passing the qualifying examination, the emphasis is on getting to the frontiers of some field by independent reading, advanced courses, and seminars. The Cambridge area is one of the most active centers of mathematics in the world. Harvard, Brandeis, and Northeastern Universities and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have an especially close association in mathematics, sharing seminars and weekly colloquia. In addition, the Harvard University Center of Mathematical Sciences and Applications hosts conferences, seminars, and workshops.

The department also offers a fourth year master’s degree, which is available to Harvard College students with advanced standing or a concurrent master’s degree which is available to Harvard College students who do not have advanced standing.

THE PHD PROGRAM

The degree of doctor of philosophy is awarded to students who have demonstrated their mastery of the basic techniques of mathematics and their ability to do independent research. 

The department values diversity among its members, is committed to building a diverse intellectual community, and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.

Applications for transfer from other programs granting PhDs in mathematics are not ruled out, but are discouraged. Students are expected to finish the program in four or five years.

Admissions Requirements

Thedepartment’sgraduate program website provides more information and the detailed program requirements. 

Financial Support

All students in the Department of Mathematics receive substantial financial support during their graduate training. This support may be in the form of fellowships, research assistantships, or teaching fellowships from Harvard, or fellowships and research assistantships from outside organizations, such as the National Science Foundation.

Students are strongly encouraged to apply for outside awards, especially predoctoral fellowship opportunities for US citizens provided by the Hertz Foundation, the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Program, the National Physical Science Consortium for Minorities and Women, and the National Science Foundation.

International students are encouraged to apply for the Fulbright IIE, Knox, and Kennedy fellowships, and other private and government scholarships and fellowships available in their home country.

Students without full outside support are required to teach as part of their financial aid package. Graduate students do not teach in their first year. Students begin as teaching fellows for one half-course (i.e., for a one-semester course) in their second through fifth years. Teaching fellows ordinarily teach their own sections of undergraduate calculus, with a course assistant to help with grading and problem sections. The department has a few upper-level tutorials available to experienced teaching fellows. All graduate students are required to participate in the Teaching Apprentice Program run by the department and demonstrate English proficiency before they may teach.
