The Mathematics Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is one of the leading institutions in the United States for research in mathematics, encompassing both pure and applied mathematics. Informally, the department is organized into seven overlapping research groups: (1) Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, and Number Theory (2) Analysis (3) Differential Equations and Dynamical Systems (4) Probability (5) Applied and Computational Mathematics (6) Topology and Geometry (7) Logic. The department maintains high standards in teaching and offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in all of these areas.
The Department of Mathematics invites international students to take a variety of courses in mathematics within our highly ranked department.
After their first year as a non-degree visiting student, VISP students have the option to apply to continue their studies in the Mathematics Masters of Arts – Foundations of Advanced Studies graduate degree program. Those intending to apply may be able to take some MA course requirements as a VISP student. However, admission to the graduate program is a separate admissions process and is not to be considered a guaranteed element of the VISP thematic track program offering. Questions regarding admission to the graduate program should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
