The mission of the Mathematics Department graduate program is to provide a quality education in a variety of areas at the master’s level and to produce graduates who are qualified to pursue doctoral work, if they should desire, or careers in government, industry, and teaching. The program maintains high standards while also providing an atmosphere in which capable students with less developed academic backgrounds can maximize their potentials. The program attempts to immerse students in an atmosphere of scholarly and creative activity in a way that will encourage them to interact with each other, with the faculty, and with undergraduates. The program seeks to expand the creative abilities of students and encourages them to communicate their results effectively in written and oral forms and to become involved in mathematical and social communities. Overall, the mission is to produce graduates who love to create and use mathematics and who are able to take an active part in their own learning.
