Mathematical Physics involves using techniques from mathematics to formulate and solve problems in physics as well as applying insights from physics to the solution of problems in mathematics. The Mathematical Physics program offers advanced training for students in the overlapping areas of mathematics, theoretical physics and their applications from a unified point of view and promotes research in the field.

# Mathematical Physics

This program is administered in conjunction with the Department of Mathematics leading to a Ph.D. degree in Mathematical Physics. While no master’s degree is offered, a student may qualify for a master’s degree in Mathematics or Physics during the course of study. Normally a student enters the program at the beginning of the second year of graduate study.
