When you pursue a master’s degree in mathematics you can take full advantage of our small class sizes, specialized faculty, and program flexibility that allows you to focus on an area of mathematics that most interests you.

You can earn a master of arts or master of science—the first requires you to take a 3-hour research methods course and the second requires a 6-hour thesis. With either master’s degree you’ll be expanding your expertise through a broad range of graduate-level mathematics courses providing you with a background suitable for community college teaching, for pursuing a doctoral degree in the mathematical sciences, or for seeking employment in business, industry, or government.

For more information, contact Hanspeter Fischer, the director of graduate programs in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, or Richard Stankewitz, the program advisor for mathematics.
