PhD in Mathematics

The Doctoral Programme in Mathematics has an extensive background at USC. Doctors trained by it created research groups that attended, and continue to successfully attend regional, national and European funding tenders and their publications achieved and continue to achieve high levels of quality and impact. According to the 2014 ranking by the National University of Taiwan, the USC ranks number 57 in the world in mathematical research, 13 on a European level and the first in Spain, as confirmed by the ranking of the University of Granada on several occasions. The programme covers all the fundamental areas of mathematics: algebra, analysis, geometry, topology and astronomy, which provides a complete training offer for students.
