Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Applying to a graduate program in Mathematics

To apply to the Master of Science in Teaching (MST) program click here!

To apply to the PHD, MS, or AMST programs follow the steps below:

Semester            International Student / GTA                      US resident
Fall                                  February 15                                            July 1
Spring                            July 15                                                     November 1
Summer                       January 15                                              April 1

Since first-year graduate courses are year-long sequences running in the Fall and Spring semesters, admission starting in the spring or summer semesters is granted only in exceptional cases.

US residents who wish to apply for a Graduate Teaching Assistantship  should apply by the international student deadline to guarantee consideration for a GTA.
