About

The typical student in the Mathematics and Statistics program of The University of Maine chooses to focus their advanced study in one of three broad areas: applied mathematics, pure mathematics, or statistics.

Overview

The Mathematics and Statistics program of The University of Maine is a 2-year graduate program leading to a Master of Arts in Mathematics. Students typically organize their program of study within one of three broad areas:

  • Applied Mathematics: In addition to advanced linear algebra and four semesters of analysis, students can take courses in partial differential equations and mathematical modeling.
  • Pure Mathematics: We offer yearlong sequences in real analysis, complex analysis, topology, and algebra.
  • Statistics: Students may take a full year of graduate level mathematical statistics, and courses in stochastic systems and linear statistical models.

Because of the small size of the program, with 10-12 students, we offer small classes, with each student receiving plenty of individual attention. We specialize in preparing students for PhD programs, but many of our graduates also pursue employment in teaching or industry.
