The M.S. degree requires a student to take at least 30 credit hours and to write a creative component or thesis. Additionally, students must pass a comprehensive oral examination over their coursework and their creative component or thesis. A major goal of our graduate program is to provide high quality research-based graduate training in Mathematics leading to a Ph.D. degree. The department also offers an M.S. degree. Given limited resources, this means that we can only admit the most outstanding applicants among those who apply. Admission decisions are based on a careful evaluation of completed applications on the basis of criteria which include academic credentials, quality of undergraduate institution, letters of recommendation, research credentials (or potential), teaching experience (or potential), relevant work experience, aptitude test scores (GRE), written and spoken communication abilities, and any other significant accomplishments.
