About

The MS Program prepares students for doctoral studies in mathematics and covers advanced topics that will prepare them to take the qualifying exams at other Ph.D. programs without the need for more coursework.

Overview

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.

M.S. Plan B: 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 based on the student’s course of study.
