Graduate Program

The Graduate Program

The SDSU Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers the MS in Mathematics, the MS in Statistics, the MS in Data Science, and the PhD in Computational Science and Statistics. All four programs offer students the opportunity to pursue graduate studies in a collegial environment with high faculty-student interaction and research activity, and are particularly effective at preparing graduates to work in business, industry, or government as well as the more traditional area of higher education. 

Assistantships and fellowships are available

Many graduate research and teaching assistantships and fellowships are available (currently 38), though applicants should note that admission to the graduate program does not guarantee that an assistantship or fellowship will be awarded.

Application for admission

Applications for admission to any of our graduate programs may be submitted online here.  Applications may be submitted at any time, but it is recommended that applications for admission for the fall semester should be made by March 1st.  Application and graduate assistantship decisions are generally made by the first week of April.  Applications submitted after March 1st will be considered, but assistantship availability for such applications is likely to be substantiailly reduced.
