The master of science in mathematics degree can serve many needs. It is intended to provide a sound foundation for further graduate study at the doctoral level and to provide additional education for teachers at the secondary school level or beyond. It can also serve those who have or who are looking for careers in industry, research and commerce (including insurance, financial planning, software development and as statisticians working on studies by companies such as pharmaceutical companies). The program is designed to be especially convenient for students wanting to pursue a graduate degree in mathematics on a part-time basis. Courses are generally offered in the evening in the fall, spring and summer semesters.
