The Master's Program
Individual programs of study leading to the Master's degree are designed to meet the particular needs of the individual students, whether they be:
- students planning on a mathematics oriented career in education or a high tech industry, or
- professionals in science and engineering seeking in-depth knowledge of the mathematics within their fields.
Both the Master of Arts degree and the Master of Science degree require either 33 hours of approved coursework or 24 hours of approved coursework and a thesis. A program of study leading to the Master of Science degree includes at least six hours of approved graduate coursework in an outside minor from either the College of Engineering or the College of Science. There are two courses required of all Master's students (one in analysis and one in algebra).
The Ph.D. Program
The graduate program has recently been expanded to include programs of study leading to the Ph.D. in applied mathematics. The Ph.D. program is designed to enable the student to master a significant body of mathematics and to conduct fundamental research in applied mathematics.
