Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Applied Mathematics The University of Alabama



Course info


The Doctor of Philosophy degree in Applied Mathematics is a joint program with The University of Alabama in Birmingham and The University of Alabama in Huntsville. The program is intended as a research degree and is awarded based on scholarly proficiency (as demonstrated by course work, passing the Joint Program Qualifying Exam and the Comprehensive Exam) and the ability to conduct independent, original research (demonstrated by the PhD dissertation). A successful student must:

Pass the Joint Program Exam (JPE), also called the Qualifying Exam. The Joint Program Examinations in Real Analysis and Linear Algebra are given during two periods each year (one in May and one in September). During each period a student may take one or both of the exams but subject to the following restrictions: (1) either exam may be attempted at most twice and (2) a student may participate in exams during no more than three periods. Core courses that will help students prepare for these exams are: MATH 580 Real Analysis I, MATH 681 Real Analysis II, MATH 572 Linear Algebra andMATH 510 Numerical Linear Algebra.

Complete 54 semester hours of graduate courses. The grade of each course has to be at least a B. The student's supervisory committee and the Joint Program Committee must approve the selection of all these courses. At least 18 hours must be in a major area of concentration, selected so that the student will be prepared to conduct research in an area of applied mathematics, while at least 12 hours have to be in a minor area of study, which is a subject outside mathematics.
