Master's Programs

The mathematics department offers an MA Mathematics degree, an MS Mathematics degree and an MS Statistics degree. For each of the math degrees a student must pass 30 units of classes and pass two qualifying exams. The MS Statistics degree requires 36 units of classes. All degrees require the student to write a thesis or writing project under the supervision of a math department faculty member. We have a wide range of faculty research areas such as algebra, applied mathematics, dynamical systems, linear algebra, graph theory, combinatorics, statistics, and mathematics education.
