This program is designed to give students a solid foundation in graduate level mathematics, to provide hands-on experience in problem-solving and the uses of technology, and to allow returning mathematics teachers to upgrade their qualifications. The program addresses the state and regional needs for students with advanced training in quantitative and analytical analysis, and prepares students for employment in government agencies, industry, financial sectors, K-12 education, college teaching, and advanced studies in doctoral programs.
- Three letters of recommendation
- Statement of purpose
Applications to the master's degree program in Mathematics are accepted on a rolling basis.
Upon admission to the program, each student will undergo a review. Deficiencies in any mathematical area will add to the number of credits required for graduation. Core requirements already satisfied will be replaced by approved electives.
To receive an M.S. in Mathematics, the student must:
- pass the courses in his or her chosen option with a grade point average of no less than 3.0 (with no more than two grades below B-).
- submit a satisfactory mathematics seminar paper or a master's thesis.
All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
