About this Degree
In addition to coursework, the Mathematics M.A. program at University of Kansas candidates must complete a research component. The research component is written up as a paper and defended by an oral examination.
Many of our Ph.D. students obtain an M.A. on their way to the doctoral degree. They have the option to do so after completing the qualifying exams.
After graduation, our M.A. students usually obtain jobs in government or the private sector (e.g., financial, insurance, telecommunication), as well as teaching jobs at junior colleges.
We have a long tradition of excellence. The first Ph.D. granted at the University of Kansas was in Mathematics, to Arnold Emch in the year 1895. Since then, our graduate program has been a central part of the research and teaching mission of our department, and is an important component of our long term planning. Our commitment to graduate education has boosted our recent growth in size and enhanced our reputation.
