The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers the Master of Science with a major in Mathematics, the Master of Science in Teaching with a major in Mathematics, and a minor in Mathematics at the graduate level.

Three concentrations are offered under the Master of Science: General Mathematics (students desiring a broad background in mathematics should pursue this concentration); Industrial Mathematics (students interested in positions in industry or further graduate work in applied mathematics should pursue this concentration), and Research Preparation (students wishing to pursue the Ph.D. in Mathematics should choose this concentration).

Two concentrations are offered under the Master of Science in Teaching: Middle Grade Mathematics and Secondary Mathematics.

The department also offers courses in the Master of Science in Professional Science degree. Students interested in a concentration in Biostatistics  or Actuarial Sciences  should refer to the Master’s of Science in Professional Science program.

The department also offers an Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s (ABM) program. Students in the Mathematics ABM are able to earn a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in five (5) years. Students interested in this program should contact the department for additional information.
