Program Overview

The Master of Science in Mathematics prepares students for Ph.D. studies in mathematical sciences and careers in industry or teaching. Graduate students can pursue their studies in many areas of pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics, and computational science (interdisciplinary). Each graduate student receives individual attention from faculty members on a specially tailored course of study. The focused training the students receive will well prepare them for further graduate studies or help them gain a competitive edge in the job market. Our past graduates pursue doctoral studies or professional careers in education, industry, government, and other fields.

Choose a mathematics concentration in:

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Pure Mathematics
  • Statistics
  • Computational Science (interdisciplinary)

Admission Requirements

For regular admission to the College of Graduate Studies to pursue the master’s in mathematics, you must have:

  • Completed requirements for the Bachelor’s Degree in a Science, Engineering, or Mathematical discipline at an accredited college or university.
  • Provided scores from the GRE and TOEFL (international students only) to the College of Graduate Studies with other admissions documents.
  • Successfully completed courses in calculus, probability, linear algebra, and analysis/advanced calculus.

If you do not meet all admission requirements, you could be granted provisional admission or non-degree admission.

Graduate Assistantships:

Graduate Assistantships are offered on a competitive basis. Typical duties include coordinating and assisting in our Computer Labs. Graduate assistants must be registered for a minimum of nine credit hours of graduate coursework, of which 6 hours must count toward their degree.
