Program Requirements

There are two plans you can follow to obtain an M.S. degree. In Plan I the student has to prepare a thesis, while Plan II provides a broader education via coursework. In either plan you must complete 30 semester hours of mathematics courses as approved by the mathematics graduate program advisor and the graduate program director. Other requirements include:

  • Your grade in each course must be at least a B.
  • 24 hours of courses must be 600-level or above.
  • MA 540, MA 541, and courses below MA 520 can not be counted towards the degree requirements.

Time to Complete

It takes usually less than two years to obtain the degree.
