Overview

Students pursuing the M.A. degree in mathematics may choose the traditional track of M.A. in either pure or applied mathematics or the track in data science (pending CBHE approval). The traditional track is well suited for students preparing to teach at the high school or junior college level.  Those who concentrate on applied courses in the traditional track build a foundation for the application of mathematics in industry and the continuation of their education in the Ph.D. program in mathematical and computational sciences.  Our graduates with the traditional track will have abilities in the basic areas of mathematics, and a breadth of knowledge in core subjects at the graduate level.  They will study at least one area of mathematics or statistics in depth and will understand some of the contemporary research in mathematics and statistics.  The M.A. with data science emphasis is well suited for students preparing to work in industry as data scientists.  Our graduates with data science emphasis will acquire a solid foundation in statistics and computational skills with emphasis on applications to data science.  Our graduates with either tracks will develop the ability to prepare and deliver oral and written presentations and the ability to pursue mathematical knowledge independently.
