The MASTER OF SCIENCE in MATHEMATICS Program

OBJECTIVES OF M.S. (MATHEMATICS) PROGRAM The M.S. (Mathematics) Program is designed primarily for those seeking advanced mathematical training in preparing for doctoral studies (whether it be in mathematics, statistics or some related field), for research, for teaching (senior level undergraduate mathematics courses.) ADMINISTRATION OF THE M.S. (MATHEMATICS) The M.S. (Mathematics) Program shall be administered by the Graduate Committee of the Department of Mathematics which will be headed by the Chairman of the department. Each area of concentration is coordinated by a Program Adviser. ADMISSION INTO THE M.S. (MATHEMATICS) PROGRAM Admission into the M.S. (Mathematics) Program requires (1) a bachelor's degree from a recognized institution of higher learning, (2) completion of Advanced Calculus (beyond the usual undergraduate calculus series), Abstract Algebra (introduction to groups, rings, fields, etc.) and Linear Algebra, Matrices and Complex Analysis and (3) satisfaction of additional University requirements such as a health clearance and other special admission requirements that may be imposed by the Graduate Committee such as the passing of an examination in the basic concepts of algebra and analysis and/or fluency in English. A student who has not previously taken up all the courses listed above but whose record, in the opinion of the Graduate Committee of the Math Department, shows some promise is required to make up for the deficiency before formal admission into the M.S. (Mathematics) Program. Usually this means having to enroll in and pass some of our undergraduate math courses. Students with deficiencies must allow an extra semester to the length of their anticipated stay in the M.S. (Mathematics) Program. Each application for admission into the M.S. (Mathematics) Program must be accomplished in the official College application form and accompanied by official transcripts of records, two (2) written recommendation from former professors or experts in the field, and the officially prescribed application fee. All applications shall be submitted to and processed by the Graduate Office, referred to the Graduate Committee for evaluation, and endorsed by the latter to the Dean for official action. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE M.S. (MATHEMATICS) DEGREE The M.S. (Mathematics) degree may be obtained either of the following two (2) options: THESIS OPTION To qualify for the M.S. (Mathematics) degree under the Thesis Option, a student must satisfy the following requirements: • • • •

complete a minimum of twenty-four (24) units of formal graduate courses, maintain a Cumulative Weighted Average Grade (CWAG) of “2.0” or better in his/her graduate courses at the end of each academic year, complete one (1) unit of a graduate seminar seminar course (over and above the 24 units of graduate courses), successfully defend a master's Thesis in a Master's Examination, and
