Return to Programs Return to: Programs

The student must meet the requirements of the Office of Graduate Education and follow a Plan of Study acceptable to this office and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The Plan of Study should represent a reasonably broad program in mathematics and must contain:

  • At least four graduate (6000) level courses of 4 credits each, of which at least two must have numbers in the range MATH 6000 to MATH 6390.
  • At least four courses coded MATH or MATP of 4 credits each.
  • Each student must participate in a capstone professional experience, by registering for and completing one of the following alternatives: 1) a Master’s Project in Mathematics, MATH 6980; 2) a Master’s Practicum, MATH 6970, such as a graduate cooperative internship (a department faculty member must approve a student’s plans in advance and must certify its satisfactory completion).

Outcomes of the Graduate Curriculum
Students who successfully complete this program will be able to:

  • demonstrate mastery of graduate-level courses in mathematics covering a range of topics, including mathematical analysis, mathematical methods and modeling, computational mathematics, and operations research.
  • demonstrate mastery of graduate-level courses in at least one area outside of mathematics.
