The goal of the Mathematical Methods program is to review and develop the majority of the mathematics that will be used during the core courses of the PhD and MACRM programs.

All incoming Harris PhD and MACRM students are required to participate in the Mathematical Methods program. Other full time Masters students interested in pursuing PhD level course work as part of completing their degree can request consideration to join the program. The treatment of topics will be semi-rigorous: in coursework, students will prove the simpler results but not the more advanced results. Students will not receive an official grade for this course but will take grade quizzes throughout the course.


Although the program is required for all PhD and MACRM students, they will need to register. Please read important information in the Schedule section below about times, instructional modalities, and vaccination requirements before registering. 


The Mathematical Methods program will occur from September 3 through September 20, 2024. Coursework will be scheduled for weekdays, with each day will include lecture-style reviews of mathematical concepts and a recitation session.  Finalized schedule will be released in summer 2024.

Additional orientation programming will also be offered during the program to ensure that participants have a smooth transition into Harris.
