Over two-thirds of the students who have entered the second year of our graduate program complete their Ph.D.'s. Of these, the overwhelming majority choose academic positions in research universities and colleges; the rest choose careers in government, private research, or industry. At Washington University, we do not simply try to produce Ph.D.'s, we try to produce mathematicians.
The best evidence of our success at placing our Ph.D. recipients in teaching and research positions is a list of those recipients since 1999 and the institutions at which they now work. See our Recent Ph.D. Recipients page in the PEOPLE area of our website.
