Mathematics M.S. Program

Mathematics M.S. Program



The Masters of Science in Mathematics program prepares students for careers featuring quantitative skills and problem-solving competencies. Typical vocational paths for graduates of the program include actuarial science, financial analysis, statistical analysis, and education on the secondary or post-secondary level.

Our program offers small class sizes, opportunities for research collaboration with faculty, professional development through conference participation, and the opportunity to gain teaching experience by supporting the undergraduate pedagogical mission.

The emphasis of the program is on applied mathematics, however the core courses provide a rigorous theoretical treatment of the traditional major components of the discipline. Exceptional students will be fully prepared to enter a doctoral program.

At the conclusion of the two-year program, students participate in a research seminar. One quarter of the required credits for the degree may be fulfilled by electives chosen to align with students’ special interests. The program is not thesis-based, but students sit for one core comprehensive examination after the completion of coursework, chosen by the student.
