Graduate and Professional Programs
The Department of Mathematics offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics and Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics.
This program is a professional mathematics degree designed to prepare students for work in a variety of areas, including business and industry. Students graduating from this program will be proficient with modern computation tools and will have experience in solving problems of a practical nature.
Highly qualified students may complete requirements for both undergraduate and graduate degrees in five years by taking up to nine graduate level courses in the senior year as part of their undergraduate degree program. Students must be admitted to the Graduate School before the last year of their undergraduate program.
The curriculum consists of 54 credit hours, including 30 hours of Master of Science in Finance courses and 24 hours of graduate level mathematics courses. The student must consult with his/her academic advisor in each discipline when selecting elective courses and must take all courses specified by the respective advisors.
The Ph.D. program in mathematics provides students with in-depth knowledge in a chosen field of mathematics, opportunities to expand this specialization into other scientific and applied disciplines, and preparation suited for careers in academia, government, or the private sector.
