Degree Program Overview

The MS in Mathematics is a thirty-six-hour program designed for students interested in pursuing doctoral study in mathematics or in pursuing careers in industry or business. Classes in the Mathematics program are distinguished by their small sizes and dynamic culture of learning, encouraging students to realize their academic potential and to continue on to productive careers in academia, business, and industry.

Students take courses in algebra, analysis, topology, applied mathematics, discrete mathematics and a wide variety of electives, providing a strong foundation in the advanced study of mathematics that supports the development of research or professional specialties. For maximum flexibility in the pursuit of an individual professional goal, the program may be completed either by writing a thesis that advances significant research in the field of mathematics or by conducting a one-semester research project in close supervision with a faculty member. For more information, please consult the Department of Mathematics and Statistics website.
