Prospective Students


Thank you for your interest in our graduate programs. We offer a Master of Science (M.S.) in mathematical sciences and a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in mathematical sciences.

Clemson's School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences was one of the pioneers in producing graduate programs which incorporate a wide breadth of mathematical training along with deep content knowledge in an area of speciality into all levels of the graduate program. Students seeking either the M.S. or Ph.D. degree may choose to specialize in any one of the many areas of expertise of our faculty. Graduates from our programs are particularly desirable in industrial settings and in research focused jobs. They are also well equipped to teach a wide variety of courses at the undergraduate level upon graduation which increases their market value in the academic sector as well.  In addition to our curriculum we also offer international exchange programs at the graduate level.

The application process and requirements for either degree are the same.  

All incoming students will be considered for assistantship support which includes tuition remission (fees are still charged) and a stipend ($17,000 per year as of fall 2015). For additional information on tuition, fees, assistantships and other forms of support available to graduate students, please note that our program fees are classified as Tier 2 fees and see the Financial/Tuition tab on the Graduate School's web page.

If you would like to visit our campus and meet some of our current faculty and students, please contact us and we will be glad to help you arrange an informative and pleasant visit. We can best accommodate visitors who allow us at least two weeks to plan the visit and will do our best to accommodate all visitors.
