Masters of Science

The Mathematics Department offers Masters of Science degrees in two distinct options: Mathematics (Option I) and Applied Mathematics (Option II).

Options I and II prepare a student for further graduate work, higher mathematical work in industry, business and government, and for teaching at community colleges. Graduates from these two Options have entered and completed Ph.D. programs in Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics throughout the country. Many have also chosen careers as full-time faculty members in Community Colleges or obtained positions in industry and business.

M.S. Option I

This program concentrates on Pure Mathematics and is primarily designed to prepare students for community college teaching, entry level positions in industry, or future graduate work in mathematics.

M.S. Option II

This program emphasizes Applied Mathematics and is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in industry, business, government, or for future graduate work in applied mathematics.
