Our Master of Science in Mathematics provides you with basic graduate training in mathematics. As a math graduate student, you will choose from a widely ranging program of study that may focus on pure or applied mathematics. The program's flexible coursework is designed to prepare you for employment in areas such as academia, government, business or industry or for further graduate study. You will work with your graduate advisor to design a program of study geared towards your interests and goals.
Upon graduation, you will have achieved a mastery of fundamental knowledge in a broad range of mathematical areas as well as a deeper understanding of at least one particular sub-field of mathematics and/or related field. You will hone your ability to solve problems and communicate solutions and concepts clearly and in rigorous mathematical language. Those of you who choose the "Thesis Option" will also be able to demonstrate an ability to present and defend research work in oral, written, and graphic forms.
Graduates of the MS Program have gone on to employment in areas such as academia, government, business or industry or have gone on to be accepted at competitive PhD programs.
