Ph.D. in Mathematics
January 1 (fall enrollment)
(No spring enrollment)
The Graduate Center's Ph.D. Program in Mathematics is a crossroads for the many research mathematicians working in the City University of New York, as well as a place for doctoral students to gain the background they will need to pursue careers as pure or applied mathematicians. The Graduate Center is the only campus offering a doctoral degree in mathematics and the majority of our faculty have dual appointments at the Graduate Center and at one of four year colleges within the CUNY system.
Research areas include algebraic geometry, algorithms, combinatorics, complex analysis and Teichmuller theory, dynamics, group theory, Lie theory, logic, number theory, probability, Riemannian geometry and analysis, and topology.

Mathematics at a Glance
Our distinguished faculty consists of 100+ research-active faculty working in all fields of mathematics.
Our Seminars are open to the Mathematics community within CUNY Graduate Center and beyond.
5 Years Financial Support
All students receive 5 years of tuition support and many receive additional financial support through a Graduate Center Fellowship.
Our Sciences Spotlight series profiles students, faculty, and alumni associated with GC Sciences programs. Learn about our community:
Student: Joe Boninger
Joe Boninger, who studies mathematical knots, was awarded a prestigious NSF Postdoc Fellowship.
Faculty: Jason Behrstock
Jason Behrstock is a mathematician who actively works in the areas of topology, geometry, and probabilistic combinatorics, with a special emphasis on how geometric group theory ties these areas together.
Alumni: Ilya Kapovich
Kapovich, who is currently a professor at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Hunter College, researches geometric group theory and geometric topology as well as computational complexity.
