Mathematics MS

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 Quater 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 One Core Comprehensive Examination 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
