Students admitted into the PhD program are required to complete a minimum of four graduate courses, at most one of which may be a seminar course, totaling 6 units, and one of MATH 693 or STAT 693 (Candidacy Examination) worth 3 units. Students entering the program without a master’s degree must complete a minimum of eight graduate courses, at most one of which may be a seminar course, and one of MATH 693 or STAT 693 (Candidacy Examination) worth 3 units. MATH 693 is a co-requisite for MATH 699, and STAT 693 is a co-requisite for STAT 699.
Within the first two years of study, all students are required to pass a multi-part candidacy examination. The format of this examination is decided in the first eight months, in consultation with the supervisory committee and graduate adviser. Students must register for one of MATH 693 or STAT 693 (Candidacy Examination) in the first term in which they are preparing or sitting the candidacy examination, and must remain registered in this course continuously until they have passed, or until they leave the program.
A dissertation of original, publishable research, normally worth 21 units (30 units for students without a master’s degree) is required. Students must register for MATH 699 or STAT 699 while they are working on their dissertations. All registrations in MATH/STAT 699 must be accompanied by registration in MATH/STAT 693 until MATH/STAT 693 has been passed.
