Program Objectives

The Master of Science in Mathematics Program centers around achieving a balance between pure mathematics and an area of application. It aims to develop the students' understanding of the content and methodology of basic mathematical disciplines in preparation for doctoral studies, research, careers in industry and government, and for teaching junior and senior undergraduate matehmatics courses. The Master of Science in Mathematics curriculum is designed to provide the student an in-depth study of standard graduate courses in Analysis and Algebra, after which a choice of electives leads the student to a specialization area in mathematics as a preparation for research.

Program Description

The MS Mathematics program, instituted in 2001, provides students with a firm grounding in theoretical mathematics. The curriculum includes courses that further develop in the student the ability to apply mathematical tools of analysis to problems in other disciplines like Engineering, Physics, Life Sciences, Computing Sciences, Statistics, Finance and even Social Sciences.
