General Information

The Master of Arts in Mathematics program is quite flexible. The degree candidate chooses a core course in each of three areas: algebra, analysis, and applied mathematics or statistics; and chooses seven other courses with the approval of the Mathematics Graduate Committee.

The program is designed to meet the needs of a broad range of students, including mathematics teachers at the secondary and college levels, industrial mathematicians, computer professionals, and prospective candidates for a PhD in Mathematics. For example, individuals seeking permanent certification in secondary mathematics may, following consultation with their advisors, develop an appropriate program of study within the MA program.
