Master of Arts in Mathematics
The Master of Arts degree in Mathematics program retains enough flexibility to prepare students to teach mathematics at the undergraduate level or to undertake doctoral work in mathematics.
This program is for students who are interested in careers in business, industry, or government; teaching at the community college level; or pursuing doctoral degrees in mathematics. It is flexible and includes core courses that acquaint students with several types of applicable mathematics as it builds a foundation of fundamental ideas in pure mathematics.
Admission Requirements, Retention & Termination Standards
Admission is dependent upon a student having completed a minimum of 20 semester hours of mathematics including MTH 233 (Calculus III) or its equivalent, and one course in either linear or abstract algebra. A grade point average of 2.7 overall and a 2.7 in mathematics are required.
Accelerated Master of Arts in Mathematics
Advanced undergraduate students majoring in mathematics may want to consider an option by which they can obtain their Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and their Master of Arts in Mathematics in five years.
The accelerated program requirements are identical to the Major in Mathematics and to the Master of Arts in Mathematics, but allow the student to apply 12 credit hours of graduate coursework toward both the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science and the Master of Arts degrees.
To be eligible for the accelerated program, a student must have completed a minimum of 20 semester hours of mathematics including MTH 233 (Calculus III) or its equivalent, and one course in either linear or abstract algebra. A grade point average of 3.0 overall and a 3.0 in mathematics are required. In addition, students must have completed MTH 332 or its equivalent with a letter grade of at least B and must have completed at least 90 credit hours of undergraduate course work, including all competency requirements and all but 12 credit hours of University Program requirements.
