Mathematics Major, MS

The department offers two options for the Master of Science degree. The first option requires a thesis for which 6 hours must be earned along with 24 additional hours of work in acceptable courses numbered above 400. Of the additional hours, 6 may be in an area outside the department and 15 must be in courses in mathematics numbered above 500.

After one semester of graduate study, a student whose advisory committee gives its approval may choose the non-thesis option for which 30 hours in courses numbered above 400 are required. Of these, 21 hours (at least 15 of which must be in mathematics) must be in courses numbered above 500. Of the 30 hours, 9 in courses approved by the advisory committee may be taken in fields other than mathematics. This option also requires that a written final examination be passed and that credit be received for a reading course (MATH 598 ) in which a term paper or project is required.

Applied Mathematics Concentration
For this concentration, available under the thesis or the non-thesis option, the student must complete the following.
