The MA in mathematics requires completion of at least eight mathematics courses (24 credits) and an oral comprehensive examination. Five of the eight courses must be taken at the 2000-3000 level; the remaining ones may be those given by the department at the 1000 level or those cross-listed with other departments. Achievement of an overall course average of B or better is required for all courses. The MS in mathematics requires a thesis.

The master’s programs in applied mathematics contain several tracks, each having a selection of required and elective courses. The MA program requires 30 credits (minimum of 7 departmental, with 5 (of the 7) at the 2000 level or above). An MS option is available that requires a total of 30 credits and a thesis (24 course credits + 6 credits-thesis).
