Welcome to the Department of Mathematics at the University of Jordan.
Through this website you will find information on all of the many activities
the Department supports. We invite you to explore our website whether you are
considering applying to our undergraduate or graduate programs, or interested
in our research, or would just like to know more about us.
assuming the responsibility of chair of the department, I want to emphasize our
ongoing commitment to excellence in teaching and research and I take a moment
to introduce you to all of our faculty members and administrative staff who
devote their time and energies towards of our collective promising mission. I
look forward to working together with every colleague in our department to keep
a high quality of our efforts and accomplishments. This will enable us to
deliver the best in teaching, research, and community services by providing
high-quality mathematics education to: Mathematics, Science, Engineering
majors, as well as providing general education mathematics courses to most of
our university programs.
The Department of Mathematics was established in 1965. We have about 34
full-time faculty members (16 Full Professor, 8 Associate Professor, 5
Assistant Professor, 5 Lecturers), 400 undergraduate and 200 graduate students
(70 M.Sc. and 130 Ph. D). The Department has strong research groups in several
areas of Mathematics and Statistics. The
Department of Mathematics at University
of Jordan offers broad
undergraduate and graduate degrees with majors in Applied Mathematics, Pure
Mathematics and Statistics. Upon completion of their major, students are well-prepared
to pursue careers in teaching or in industry and are ready for graduate study
leading to advanced degrees.
Please feel free to come
by my office (Math. Building, Second Floor) if you have any questions about our
programs, or link to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, please enjoy visiting the rest of our webpage.
Mohammad Z. Raqab, Chair
Department of Mathematics
Mathematics Department at the University
of Jordan is a well-known
center for education and research in Mathematics. Undergraduate and Graduate
programs, with opportunities for specialization in all major areas of Mathematics
leading to Bachelor, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. In
particular, the excellent programs offered by the department are of special
interest and are rewarding to many students in Mathematics.
The Department of Mathematics
offers one undergraduate program (B.Sc.) and two graduate programs (M.Sc., Ph.D.).
Below is a brief description of the departmental requirements for all these
B. Sc. Program
Students should complete 132
credits from university, college and department course requirements. Students
should take 27 credits as university requirements, 21 credits as college
requirements and 84 as major credits. Major courses are taken from several
areas including: Analysis, Algebra, Topology, Applied Mathematics and Statistics.
Program (Non-Thesis Track):
completion of 33 graduate credits. These include 24 credits from compulsory courses
and 9 credits from elective course requirements.
2. Passing with grade B or higher for any required course.
3. Passing a comprehensive exam (scoring at least 75 points
out of 100)
Program (Thesis Track):
1. Completing of
24 graduate credits. These include 18 credits from compulsory courses and 6
credits from elective course requirements.
with grade B or higher for any required course
3. Under the
guidance and supervision of a member of the department faculty, each student
should complete reasonably valuable research dissertation.
year approximately 6 students complete their Mathematics Ph.D. degree. The time
span to complete this degree is on the average 4-5 years. The Ph.D. requirements
are as follows:
Courses: Completion of 54 credits of graduate work. These credits
must be entirely in various Mathematics areas.
Grades: Each student should keep a grade point average of 3.0 or
better in Mathematics and cross listed courses.
Exams: Ph.D. student should pass basic and advanced
qualifying exams in five areas of Mathematics. The areas are: Algebra,
Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Topology and Statistics. The student can choose
3 areas for basic qualifying exam and two areas for advanced exam. These exams
are generally given in the 5th week of each semester after the beginning
of classes. These exams are written and the time allowed for each is 3 hours. Guidelines to Topics for the Qualifying Examinations Can be Found in the Department Office.
and Dissertation: Under the guidance and
supervision of a member of the department faculty, each Ph.D. student must complete
a reasonably original research.
Please see the Faculty list for detailed information
on mathematical research.
