Graduate Schools in Mathematics
The following is the 2010 US News and World Report's list of the top graduate programs in mathematics in the United States. The rankings are not too far off the mark today for programs in pure mathematics. For a ranking of programs in applied mathematics, talk with Professors Mohler and Ostrov. You can click on a university name to get to its math department's website. Use American Mathematical Society Mathematics Graduate Programs search page to determine which Master's and Ph.D. programs offer which specialties (applied mathematics, statistics, biostatistics, algebra/number theory, geometry/topology, etc.).
