The Masters of Science in Mathematics program prepares students for careers featuring quantitative skills and problem-solving competencies. The emphasis of the program is on applied mathematics; however, the core courses provide a rigorous theoretical treatment of the traditional major components of the discipline. Exceptional students will be fully prepared to enter a doctoral program.
At the conclusion of the two-year program, students participate in a research seminar. One quarter of the required credits for the degree may be fulfilled by electives chosen to align with students' special interests. The program is not thesis-based, but students sit for two(theoretical, applied) comprehensive examinations after the completion of coursework, chosen by the student.
Our program offers:
- small class sizes
- opportunities for research collaboration with faculty
- professional development through conference participation
- the opportunity to gain teaching experience by supporting the undergraduate pedagogical mission
