Graduate Master of Science (M.S.) Programs
The department offers the M.S. degree in both Applied Mathematics and Mathematics.
Applied Mathematics
The emphasis of this program is on mathematics and how it is employed to study science, engineering, or management problems. It stresses construction, analysis, and evaluation of mathematical models of realworld problems, and those areas of mathematics that are most widely used to solve them. The requirements for this degree allow students to prepare for entry into the Ph.D. program in applied mathematics or for employment in business, industry, or government.
The student must meet the Office of Graduate Education requirements and follow a plan of study acceptable to this office and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Each student’s program of study must include:
 At least four graduate (6000) level courses of four credits each, of which at least two must be in math (MATH 6xxx or MATP6xxx).
 At least four courses coded MATH or MATP of four credits each.
 At least one three or fourcredit course at the 4000 or 6000 level outside the department (i.e., not coded MATH or MATP and not cross listed with any department course), selected in consultation with the math adviser.
Each student must participate in a Capstone Professional Experience.
Mathematics
The student must meet the Office of Graduate Education requirements and follow a plan of study acceptable to this office and the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The plan of study should represent a reasonably broad program in mathematics and must contain:
 At least four graduate (6000) level courses of four credits each, of which at least two must have numbers in the range MATH6000 to MATH6390.
 At least four courses coded MATH or MATP of four credits each.
Each student must participate in a Capstone Professional Experience.
