2020-2021 Graduate Catalog

Masters in Mathematics, 30-31 credits

The master’s degree in mathematics provides students with a broad graduate-level mathematical background suitable for community college teaching, for pursuing a PhD degree in the mathematical sciences, or for seeking employment in business, industry, or government. Students pursuing the master of science degree will be required to write a 6-credit thesis. Students taking THES 698 are expected to make an oral presentation on their thesis topic, at the discretion of the committee. For a master of arts or master of science degree a maximum of four 500-level courses will count towards meeting the requirements for the degree.
