Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
University rank #101 (ARWU) Cleveland Heights, OH, United States
Faculty members conduct research in algebra, analysis, applied mathematics, convexity, dynamical systems, geometry, imaging, inverse problems, life sciences applications, mathematical biology, modeling, numerical analysis, probability, scientific computing, stochastic systems, and other areas.


The department offers a variety of programs leading to both undergraduate and graduate degrees in traditional and applied mathematics and statistics. Undergraduate degrees are Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in mathematics, Bachelor of Science in applied mathematics, and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in statistics. Graduate degrees are Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. Integrated BS/MS programs allow a student to earn a Bachelor of Science in either mathematics or applied mathematics and a master’s degree from the mathematics department or another department in five years; there is a similar integrated bachelor/masters program in statistics. The department, in cooperation with the college's Teacher Licensure Program, offers a program for individuals interested in pre-college teaching. Together with the Department of Physics, it offers a specialized joint Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Physics.

Mathematics plays a central role in the physical, biological, economic, and social sciences. Because of this, employment prospects are always strong for individuals with degrees in mathematics, and there are excellent career opportunities. A bachelor’s degree in mathematics or applied mathematics offers a strong background for graduate school in many areas (including computer science, medicine, and law, in addition to mathematics and science) or a position in the private sector. A master’s degree in mathematics or applied mathematics, or an undergraduate degree in applied mathematics combined with a master’s in a different area, is an excellent basis for employment in the private sector in a technical field. A PhD degree is usually necessary for college teaching and research.Statistics links mathematics to other disciplines in order to understand uncertainty and probability in the abstract and in the context of actual applications to science, medicine, actuarial science, social science, management science, business, engineering, and contemporary life. As technology brings advances, the statistical theory and methodology required to do them justice becomes more challenging: higher dimensional, dynamic, or computer-intensive. The field of statistics is rapidly expanding to meet the three facets of these challenges: the underlying mathematical theory, the data analysis and modeling methodology, and the interdisciplinary collaborations and new fields of application.Students in the department, both undergraduate and graduate, have opportunities to interact personally with faculty and other students, and research and other activities are available. In addition, undergraduates can obtain teaching experience via the department’s supplemental instruction program.
