Master of Science in Mathematics
The M.Sc. in Mathematics is a 30 CH’s program that is offered both full and part time within the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Students are required to complete 24 credit hours of coursework in addition to 6 credit hours assigned to research and a completion of a M.Sc. thesis. In addition to 2 CH of college requirements, the coursework includes 3 core mathematics courses and Seminar (10 CH), 4 elective courses (12 CH), that allow the student to specialize in any specific topic related to pure or applied mathematics. Student progress is overseen by a research supervisor (and co-supervisors) and a thesis defense committee. The program is a fee-based program open for all students who meet the entry requirements.
