Graduate Program

The Department of Mathematics of the University of Georgia is a vibrant mathematical community. The department has held an NSF VIGRE workforce grant and an NSF VIGRE II workforce grant for 12 years, and more recently a $2,000,000 NSF Research and Training Group (RTG) grant (2014-2022). These grants provided additional financial support for graduate students, and stimulated research and teaching collaborations among the mathematics faculty, postdoctoral associates, graduate students, and undergraduates.

We are noted for the friendliness of our faculty and students, and for our flexibility in adapting programs to the needs of each individual student. The department has particularly active research groups in additive combinatorics, algebra, algebraic geometry, analysis, applied mathematics, geometry, number theory, and topology.
