Graduate Program in Mathematics and Applications

The Graduate Program in Mathematics offers a comprehensive curriculum of advanced study and research, from the Master's to the Doctorate degree, in applied mathematics and fundamental mathematics. Through its association with PSL’s laboratories in mathematics, the major PRAIRIE research program and the mathematics chairs at the Collège de France, the graduate program offers a Master’s degree in which research plays a central role. Students may also choose elective courses designed to improve their transdisciplinary skills and broaden their curriculum.
