About the Program

The requirements listed below are in addition to the university and Graduate School  requirements. A student must fill out a degree plan after the end of the first long semester and before the start of the second long semester in the program. Each student’s program of study and committee must be approved by a graduate program representative from the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. It is expected that the student’s final oral defense of a thesis will be open to all who wish to attend, with scheduling to reflect this.

This M.S. program consists of 30 hours of graduate work that includes 24 hours of coursework (a minimum of 18 hours in mathematics/statistics) and 6 hours of credit for the master’s thesis.

This plan calls for 24 hours of course work and at least 6 hours of the thesis course (MATH 6000 ). Of the 24 hours of course work, 18 must be in mathematics and must include one sequence in a core area. The core areas are:

In the area of real analysis, MATH 5318 -MATH 5319  is not considered to be a core sequence; likewise in the area of applied mathematics, MATH 5310 -MATH 5311  is not considered to be a core sequence.

A minor in an approved area outside of mathematics is permitted. A thesis defense is required.
