The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The University of New Mexico   offers a Master in Science (M.S.) in Mathematics and a Doctor in Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Mathematics. Each of these degrees can be in the concentration of Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics.



The M.S. in Mathematics at The University of New Mexico   is awarded under either Plan I: 26 hours and 6 hours thesis or Plan II: 32 hours. Under Plan II instead of writing a thesis, students must pass the M.S./Ph.D. Qualifying Exam at master’s level. To enter the Ph.D. program, students must pass this same exam but at a higher level, hence the Ph.D. qualifying examination requirements are the same as those listed for M.S. Plan II.  After passing the Qualifying Exam, the Ph.D. candidate must fulfill 18 more hours of course credits, pass the Doctoral Comprehensive Exam, fulfill a language requirement, accumulate at least 18 hours of dissertation credits, and finally submit and defend his/her dissertation.

The general requirements for both the M.S. and Ph.D. in Mathematics degrees are given in the UNM Catalog. Specific academic requirements, necessary paperwork, and deadlines are discussed and described in detail in the Mathematics Graduate Handbook.
