Graduate Assistantships:

Graduate Assistantships are offered on a competitive basis.  Typical duties include coordinating and assisting in our Computer labs.  Graduate assistants must be registered for a minimum of nine credit hours of graduate coursework, of which 6 hours must count toward their degree. If you’re interested, complete the Graduate Assistantship Application.

General questions about admission, graduate assistantships, and requests for application materials and catalogs should be directed to the College of Graduate Studies.

Degree Requirements

Requirements for the degree include 36 credit hours, consisting of:

Three core courses of a concentration (9 credit hours):

Pure Mathematics

Program Learning Outcomes

The mission of the Master of Science degree in the Department of Mathematical Sciences is to provide graduate students with a strong foundation that leads to success in subsequent careers and educational programs. When graduate students leave our program, they will be prepared for careers (in industry or academia) or for further graduate studies. This is accomplished by having our students demonstrate deep knowledge in core classes, read, analyze and write proofs, communicate mathematical ideas written and verbally, as evidenced by the successful defense of a thesis, and conduct independent and collaborative research.

The Department of Mathematical Sciences supports the University mission of academic distinction in teaching, scholarship and service by providing a superior educational opportunity for students by promoting all aspects of teaching, learning, and researching mathematics.


Upon completion of the MS in Mathematics program, majors will be able to:

PLO1. Solve problems in the advanced areas of (a) numerical analysis, (b) linear algebra, (c) real analysis, and (d) statistics.

PLO2. Read, analyze, and write logical arguments to prove mathematical concepts.

PLO3. Communicate mathematical ideas with clarity and coherence, both written and verbally.

PLO4. Perform research in conjunction with others as well as individually.
