Program: Mathematics (PhD)
Date: Sun Oct 10, 2010 - 9:59:01 am
1) Below are the program student learning outcomes submitted last year. Please add/delete/modify as needed.
Graduate students in the UHM mathematics program should learn the fundamental results and methods of modern algebra, real and complex analysis. They should learn mathematics from a variety of fields. Most importantly, they should learn to think, do research, and write mathematics independently.
The graduate mathematics core for the masters degree is reflected in the contents of Math 611-612 (abstract algebra) , Math 631 (real analysis) and Math 644 (complex analysis). Doctoral candidates are also responsible for Math 632 (real analysis 2). The topics in the core are the subject of the algebra and analysis comprehensive exams for PhD students.
The breadth requirement is reflected in the requirement of additional courses. Each student's graduate adviser ensures that a variety of appropriate topics are studied.
The student is expected to master an area of specialization. Research in this special area forms the topic for the masters paper or doctoral dissertation. For PhD candidates, there is also a specialty exam in the chosen area.
