The Department of Mathematics offers the degree of Master of Arts in Mathematics. The program is designed to accommodate students seeking either a terminal degree or preparation for Ph.D. work at another institution. The degree requirements are flexible and permit both thesis and non-thesis programs of study. Courses and thesis projects are available in both pure and applied mathematics. Faculty research interests include algebra, topology, number theory, combinatorics, differential equations, analysis, operations research, statistics, medical and biological applications, scientific computing and medical engineering.
Candidates for admissions to the Master of Arts Program in Mathematics should have completed at least thirty three semester hours of mathematics at an accredited college or university. At least fifteen of these hours should require as a prerequisite two semesters of calculus or a semester of linear algebra. Most successful applicants have taken three semesters of calculus (through multi variable calculus), linear algebra, abstract algebra (or modern algebra) and advanced calculus (or other advanced courses in analysis). Applicants who do not have this preparation may be required to take additional preparatory courses.
