MS with Thesis
The Department of Mathematics offers graduate courses leading to M.Sc., and eventually to Ph.D., degree in Mathematics. The Master of Science program aims to provide a sound foundation for the students who wish to pursue a research career in mathematics as well as other related areas. The department emphasizes both pure and applied mathematics. Research in the department covers algebra, number theory, combinatorics, differential equations, functional analysis, abstract harmonic analysis, mathematical physics, stochastic analysis, biomathematics and topology.
Applicants must have B.S. or B.A. degrees preferably in engineering or in sciences relevant to the particular degree program. In addition to course work, students are engaged in thesis research. Every student is supervised by an advisor. The M.S. Program with Thesis option requires that the students successfully complete a minimum of 21 credits (with 7 courses) beyond a Bachelor’s degree. In addition to the credit courses, students must complete the non-credit courses; MATH 590 Seminar, ENGL 500 Graduate Writing and TEAC 500 Teaching Experience.
The requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics are as follows.
The master program in Mathematics consists of a) at least 21 credit hours of course work, b) a master thesis and c) graduate seminar course. All students have to take
The total credit of these required courses is 8. In addition to these courses students have to take two sequence courses among the courses in areas listed below as a) to g), such as Math 531-532, Math 521-522, etc… These courses are not allowed to be 400 level courses. The areas are;
To complete the credit requirements the courses may be chosen among courses offered by the department of Mathematics and the other departments of the Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering. At most 2 of the elective courses can be 400 level undergraduate courses. The choice of courses must be approved by the student’s graduate advisor.
Students who have TA assignments must take TEAC 500: Teaching Experience during the semesters of their assignments. Students must also take ENGL 500: Graduate Writing course.
