The Master of Arts in Mathematics program is intended primarily for teachers or would-be teachers of mathematics courses for non-mathematics majors such as students of business administration, economics, engineering, pre-medicine, the social science, etc.

 

The M.A. Mathematics program is intended primarily for college mathematics teachers whose undergraduate preparation was not really a BS Mathematics degree. It is for teachers seeking a "mathematics content" (as opposed to a "teaching methods") master's degree program.

 

General requirements for the master's degree set forth by the College of Science are applied. In order to be accepted in the program, students must have taken the following:

  1. a bachelor's degree
  2. completed college-level courses in algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry and calculus

Every candidate for the Master of Arts in Mathematics Program requires the completion of the following core courses:

  1. 34 units of course work, including a research paper and a one-unit graduate seminar.
  2. a comprehensive examination.
