Standard Mathematics

Standard Mathematics is the popular option for masters students and is recommended for those who may choose to pursue a doctorate in mathematics or statistics.

Industrial Mathematics

The objective of the Master’s program in Industrial Mathematics is to enable students to acquire the fundamentals of applied mathematics in areas of classical and numerical analysis, differential equations and dynamical systems, and probability and statistics. At the same time, the connection of these fields to modeling of physical, biological, engineering, and financial phenomena will be stressed by requiring courses outside the Department. Students are to obtain practical experience in mathematical modeling and analysis during an internship or industrial project that will culminate in a thesis. Emphasis is placed on developing mathematical skills that government and industrial employers value.

Actuarial Science

Actuarial science is the quantitative analysis of risk. In addition to mathematics and statistics courses, students in actuarial science take classes in finance, economics, and computer programming.

Foundations of Advanced Studies

This option is designed to prepare students for advanced-level graduate programs. It is structured so that students with basic preparation from their undergraduate institutions can complete the option in no more than two years. Some students with a higher level of preparation may transfer up to 12 graduate credits from the courses they completed previously; such students may advance more quickly through the program and complete the degree in only one year.
