The Ph.D. Mathematics Program is intended to encourage the development of mathematics in the Philippines through the production of highly trained mathematicians whose research works contribute to the development of new knowledge. Corollary to this main objective is the upgrading of mathematics teaching in colleges and universities.

 

Admission into the Ph.D Mathematics Program shall require:

  1. a B.S.or M.S. degree in mathematics or its equivalent
  2. a very high degree of intellectual capacity and aptitude for advanced study and research in mathematics
  3. satisfaction of additional university requirements such as a health clearance and other special admission requirements

 

Students with M.S. Degrees are required to complete the following:

  • 24 units of formal graduate courses
  • 1 unit graduate seminar
  • Preliminary (Comprehensive) Examinations
  • Candidacy Examination
  • Qualifying Examination
  • Submission of bound copies of Dissertation

 

Students with B.S. degrees only (straight Ph.D. program) are required to complete the following:

  • 45 units of formal graduate courses
  • 1 unit graduate seminar
  • Preliminary (Comprehensive) Examinations
  • Candidacy Examination
  • Qualifying Examination
  • Submission of bound copies of Dissertation

 

Students in the Ph.D. (Mathematics) Program must complete the following courses:

  • Core Courses
    • Math 210.1 (Modern Algebra I)
    • Math 210.2 (Modern Algebra II)
    • Math 211 (Linear Algebra)
    • Math 220.1 (Theory of Functions of a Real Variable I)
    • Math 220.2 (Theory of Functions of a Real Variable II)
    • Math 228 (Theory of Functions of a Complex Variable)
  • Other Required Courses
    • Math 242 (General Topology)
    • One additional analysis course
    • One Geometry course
    • One additional geometry or topology course
  • For students taking the straight Ph.D. Program, fifteen (15) units of electives chosen from courses in mathematics and allied fields (e.g. computer science, mathematical economics, mathematical physics, operations research, statistics with at least twelve (12) of the fifteen (15) units chosen from advanced mathematics courses.
  • One (1) unit of graduate seminar course (Math 296)
