For the M.S. degree with thesis, the program must include at least 30 hours of graduate credit, at least six hours of which must be lecture courses at the 6000-level and six or more hours of which must be Graduate Research, MATH 5099 or STAT 5099. Candidates in a non-thesis program must pass a final comprehensive examination while candidates in a thesis program must pass an oral thesis defense. All M.S. candidates are encouraged to include in their program courses in engineering and science which are closely related to their research in mathematics or statistics. For those intending to terminate study at the M.S. level, specializations supporting specific career goals are possible. The master of science for teachers program is primarily designed for secondary school teachers in the physical sciences and mathematics. The program of study must include at least 32 hours of courses numbered above 2000 in science and mathematics, three hours of which must be at the 6000-level. No more than six hours may be at the 2000-level; any such courses must be from departments other than mathematics and statistics and are subject to the approval of the student's master's committee.
