Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Degree Programs

The Master of Science degree with a major in mathematics is designed for those students who wish to develop a high level of competence in mathematical theory and technique in order to apply this knowledge in fields outside mathematics. The program consists of 36 hours of approved course work, possibly including a minor of up to 9 hours in a field outside mathematics.

Candidates must demonstrate a proficiency in computer programming equivalent to that acquired in a 6-hour introductory course. A final examination normally will be scheduled during the final term/semester of the student’s course work. A thesis is optional.
