The Department offers a doctoral program in Mathematics (PhD). A wide variety of advanced courses are offered in pure and applied mathematics. The large number of scientific activities in Montréal and the quality of courses makes our programs among the best in North America.

In general, a Master's degree in mathematics or a related field is required to apply for admission to the doctoral program in mathematics. However, it is possible to pass directly to the PhD program with an undergraduate degree. This option is reserved for students with an exceptional academic record and who have the support of their prospective research director (advisor).
