Qualifying Review-Mathematics Ph.D.
The following information about the Mathematics Ph.D. Qualifying Review (QR) can be found on this page: QR Examination Schedule2017-2018 (PDF) QR General DescriptionEach Mathematics Ph.D. student must pass the Qualifying Review. This consists of written examinations, a course requirement, and a survey by the Doctoral Committee of the student's record as a graduate student in the Department. The purpose of the Review is to ensure that students have a good knowledge of core graduate mathematics and to evaluate the chances that a student will be able complete a Ph.D. degree. The Qualifying Review Examinations are a written set of examinations offered three times a year in early January, May, and September. They cover applied analysis and each of the three major areas of pure mathematics---algebra, analysis, and geometry/topology. The syllabus for the Examination in each area is the same as that for the corresponding core courses: Algebra: Math 593, 594 Students are responsible for the material in the syllabus even when it is not covered in a particular core course. Please find the complete description of the QR requirements here on page 2. Completing the QR RequirementThere are a few ways to satisfy the QR Requirement.
Retesting and Requirement Deadline: Students are encouraged to take the QRs as soon as possible. The QR can be taken as many times as necessary with the only stipulation that a student must pass the exams in one area by the beginning of the fourth term in the program, and must complete the entire Review by the beginning of the sixth. The Department expects the entire Qualifying Review to be completed by the end of the fourth term, and requires that it be completed by the start of the sixth term. Thus, for example, a student entering the Doctoral Program in the Fall of 2013 must pass the Examination in at least one area by early January 2015 and the whole Review by no later than early January 2016.
