Our department has an impressive research record in both pure mathematics and in its
applications to science and industry. Whether you are pursuing an undergraduate or
graduate degree, our program trains students in the analytical skills needed to excel
in the knowledge economy.
We are home to a
Ph.D. program in mathematics. We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2019 admission!
The application deadline is February 28, 2019, but we will continue to accept applications
after this date if space is still available. For details on how to apply and what

The Carnegie Foundation has designated the University of South Carolina as an institution of very high research activity, its
highest rating. We offer ample opportunities in our department to graduate and undergraduate
students to work on research.
USC is also home to the NanoCenter and the Interdisciplinary Math Institute, where
our faculty and students can participate in and conduct research.
From campus clubs to
study abroad, our students are able to learn outside the classroom, applying what they know and
gaining valuable experience. This gives them an edge when it's time to apply for graduate
school or choose a career.
The Department of Mathematics is home to a dynamic group of scholars who regularly
share their expertise with others. Many of our events and activities are free and
open to the public, and we encourage you to get involved.
