Size of Mathematics Departments

Post by Ell » Sat Jun 02, 2012 7:16 am

Hi everyone!

Does anyone know of a source of US mathematics departments ranking in terms of size? I searched the web but in vain.

Also, do you think it's more difficult for international students to be admitted into very small mathematics programs?

I got this from by giving the highest weights to number of students, number of PhDs per year, and number of faculty: ... __888____U

Unsurprisingly, the biggest math departments are generally at the top public universities.
