Students in the Penn Math graduate program can pursue Ph.D. or masters degrees, in preparation for research or professional careers in mathematics. The Ph.D. program ordinarily takes five years, during which students receive generous funding, first while taking courses and later while working on research under the supervision of a faculty advisor. In at least two of the five years, Ph.D. students have no teaching requirements. Our research specializations cover a wide range of mathematical areas. Read more.


The University of Pennsylvania was founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1740.
