What will I learn?

The Mathematics Graduate Program promotes the study of classical and modern topics in advanced mathematics. It provides excellent preparation for further graduate work in the mathematical sciences, and offers a solid foundation for a career in teaching or any technical field that requires advanced analytical reasoning. Students typically take courses in modern algebra, analysis, combinatory, graph theory, geometry, numerical analysis and probability and statistics. Program requirements are flexible to allow students to pursue individual interests.

The Master of Science degree program in Mathematics offers advanced mathematical training in the traditional areas of mathematics, yet is flexible enough to allow students to pursue related interests in mathematics. Students may select courses in algebra, analysis, combinatory, and geometry, as well as differential equations, graph theory, numerical analysis, probability, and statistical theory.

Program Requirements:

The Master of Science degree may be earned by satisfying the requirements of the mathematics or the applied mathematics option. The mathematics option is a flexible program emphasizing advanced mathematical concepts in the core areas of mathematics. Students may either complete a traditional curriculum in mathematics or develop, with a graduate advisor, a plan of study that is tailored to their individual needs. Either option can provide a solid foundation for doctoral study in mathematics or for a career in teaching, industry, or government.
