Master's Degree in Mathematics

One of the UAB pedestrian bridges over University Blvd. We are looking for students ready to accept a challenge. Our goal is to give students the background to use mathematics in a variety of ways through training in mathematical rigor. This can enhance your ability to analyze and solve problems in all walks of life. We also emphasize the development of communication skills, something useful in the classroom and the workplace. If you are just entering college, we encourage you to consider our fast-track program.

Careers with an M.S. in Math

The M.S. program is designed to prepare students for careers in:

  • secondary or junior college-level teaching,
  • business,
  • industry,
  • government, and
  • Ph.D. programs (for students who wish to pursue a Ph.D. in Mathematics but whose undergraduate education did not provide a sufficient background in advanced mathematics to directly enter a Ph.D. program).

In the past our students have been very successful in obtaining employment.
