Program Description:

The Master of Science Degree in Mathematics: The M.S. program is designed to prepare students for one or more of the following areas: pre-college or junior college teaching, industrial employment, or further graduate study. A minimum of specific course requirements allows the student a great deal of freedom in his or her program of study and thereby fulfills the purpose of the program.

The Master of Science Degree in Mathematics with an emphasis in Computer Science: This degree calls for a balance of mathematics courses and computer courses designed for the student with little or no background in computer science.

Master of Science in Statistics: This program is a concentrated study in statistics.

The Ph.D. Degree: The principal goal of the Ph.D. program is to train research oriented mathematicians for college and university teaching and for governmental and industrial employment. The student has the option of concentrating in one of five specialty areas: Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, or Topology. Minimum course requirements have been established in each of these areas to ensure that the student obtains a broad based background in Mathematics and, in addition, attains depth in his or her specialty area.
