The primary mission of the MS degree program in Mathematics and Statistics is to prepare students for professional careers in disciplines which make use of the mathematical and statistical sciences. The curriculum is intended for individuals who have strong backgrounds, but not necessarily baccalaureate degrees, in mathematics. It is the only such program in the greater DC area, and it culminates in an MS degree in Mathematics and Statistics.

The program derives its philosophy from government and industry organizations in the DC area and has placed graduates into government agencies, defense and financial firms and nonprofits. There is a steady demand for highly trained professionals in data analytics, applied mathematical and statistical modeling and cloud computing, and our students have proven to be exceptionally competitive in the job market. A thriving internship program in mathematical and statistical consulting helps to train and place students and graduates into exciting jobs and satisfying careers.... [-]

The MS program offers thesis and non-thesis tracks to prepare individuals for distinctive career or professional paths. All students take core courses and comprehensive examinations in the fields of analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry.

MS Coursework

Coursework must include a minimum of five graduate-level courses; at least four of the courses must be core courses; at least three must be offered by the Chemistry Department. At least two graduate-level courses must be taken outside the subdiscipline of the student and in at least two other subdisciplines.

MS Comprehensive Examinations

MS degree candidates must pass four comprehensive examinations in the fields of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. These examinations are offered (over a period of several days) in fall, spring, and summer; announcements are posted on the Departmental bulletin boards. When prepared (usually after completion of the appropriate graduate course), a student should indicate his or her intention to take any two or all four of the examinations within the specified time period. A student may be excused from an examination if he or she has performed well in a related course(s) completed within the past year. A student who fails one or more of the comprehensive examinations may repeat the exam(s) at the next scheduled examination period. If the student fails a second time, no further opportunity to take an examination is permitted.... [-]
