The University of Arizona offers programs leading to the Master of Arts, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in mathematics. Concentrations are available in pure, applied, or computer mathematics, in mathematics education, or in probability and statistics. As there are no sharp boundaries between these concentrations, students are encouraged to pursue a broad range of mathematical topics. Programs are planned in consultation with faculty advisers.
To be admitted, applicants must have completed the equivalent of an undergraduate major in mathematics with at least 15 units of upper-division or higher level work including one semester each of advanced analysis at the level of Math 425A, abstract algebra at the level of Math 415A, and linear algebra at the level of Math 413. Applicants are asked to submit scores on the Graduate Record Examination, including the subject Examination in Mathematics .
At least one year-long course sequence in mathematics which is not co-convened must be included. Master of Arts (Teaching Option): 30 units of approved graduate credit, including up to 6 units of thesis credit; 9 to 12 units should be outside the Department of Mathematics or from the following list of graduate mathematics courses: Math 504, 530, and 596E (Topics in Mathematics for Secondary Teachers - contents will vary, the course may be repeated).

Each candidate's course of study should be established in consultation with a member of the Mathematics Education Committee.
