Graduate programs in Ewha aims to study basic field of reasoning for natural science including functional analysis, algebraic number theory and analytic number theory, topology, and algebra. The computer facilities of the Department of Mathematics are outstanding, in which high-specification PCs are equipped for the study of applied mathematics such as cryptology and numerical analysis. In the Department of Mathematics at present, there are 12 faculty members, 6 doctoral students, 24 graduate students.
Most students, majoring mathematics feel free to study in an environment where most of them receive scholarship from BK21 scholarship or research assistant scholarship. There is also cross registration system between Ewha Womans, Yonsei, and Sogang Universities and therefore, students can develop a broad understanding in mathematics. Moreover, Mathematical Science Research Institute was built in 1997 and it supports various kinds of academic activities to graduates of the mathematics. After acquisition of master’s degree from the mathematics program, students follow various career paths: many enter jobs in the industrial sector, finance, or even government, for which their mathematical backgrounds have well-prepared them. Still others pursue doctors’ degree in mathematics, intending to be high-level researchers.
