Research. Teaching. Real-world experience.
Graduate training in the mathematical sciences opens worlds of opportunities in many areas, including education, industry, finance, medicine and government.
The University of Toledo offers three graduate degree programs in mathematics:
M.A. in mathematics
M.S. in mathematics
Ph.D. in mathematics
Financial support. A majority of our mathematics master's degree and doctoral students receive teaching assistantships. They teach as recitation instructors or teach their own courses. We provide extensive and high-quality pedagogical training. Apply by January 31 for your greatest chance of earning a TA position.
Real-world statistical experience. UToledo's Statistical Consulting Service allows students to solve real problems with real data. Students meet with clients from the community and the University, design studies, analyze data and write reports. Their breadth of knowledge in many statistical methods allows them to offer statistical assistance to researchers from many fields.
Network and get involved. Pi Mu Epsilon, our students’ honor society, and Delta X, our student club, meet and plan activities throughout the year.
Excellent teacher training. All of UToledo's graduate students attend a weekly pedagogical seminar and learn what it takes to excel as educators.
State-of-the-art computing facilities. All math graduate students have access to the latest technology. Many courses have technological components, allowing for improved pedagogy, insights into theoretical concepts, application to real-world problems and more.
Employers and graduate programs at leading universities love our graduates for their:
