MATHEMATICS (M.A.) 32 CREDIT HOURS REQUIRED


PLAN B (non-thesis): Total 32 credit hours


  • Required Math Courses 9 credit hours
  • Elective Math Courses 15 credit hours
  • Supporting Courses Outside the Department 8 credit hours

Electives/Non-departmental requirements: Total 23 credit hours


Supporting Courses Outside the Department (8 cr.)


Notes:


M.A. Plan B: The final written exam will consist of two parts: one part on either the Abstract Algebra sequence or the Advanced Calculus sequence; and the other part in candidate-selected areas, approved by the departmental committee, consisting of two mathematics courses, not necessarily sequenced. The final comprehensive oral exam will be based on the student’s course of study.

Students who want to experience research in mathematics are encouraged to consider the M.S. Program.

Notes:

M.S. Plan A: The final written exam will consist of two parts: one part on either the Advanced Algebra sequence or the Real Variables sequence; and the other part in candidate-selected areas, approved by the departmental committee, consisting of two mathematics courses, not necessarily sequenced. The final comprehensive oral exam will be the thesis defense.
