The Department of Mathematics offers a flexible program of study leading to the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Mathematical Sciences. After completing a core program of twelve (12) credits, the student may select coursework from a curriculum designed to emphasize classical mathematics, applied mathematics/computational mathematics, actuarial mathematics, mathematical statistics, or mathematics education.A student may pursue a program of study to include coursework in other mathematically oriented disciplines. For example, under the supervision of a graduate advisor, the student may design a program in which as much as half of the student's coursework is taken at the graduate level in computer science, management science, physics, technology, or some other mathematically oriented area.Depending on the design of the program, opportunities for the student who successfully completes the M.S. degree are numerous. These programs may lead to careers in business, industry, government, or advanced teaching positions in secondary or higher education. The department also offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Mathematical Sciences with a concentration in Precollegiate Mathematics.
