Program purposes and philosophy: The Master of Arts in Mathematics is designed primarily for individuals who seek a terminal graduate degree in mathematics. However, students may in consultation with their advisor, design a program that will prepare them for a Ph.D. in mathematics. In addition, this program meets the New York State guidelines for permanent certification for those with initial teaching certification in secondary mathematics education.Non-degree students should not enroll in more than 9 s.h. of graduate courses before applying to a degree program.
Non-degree students should not enroll in more than 9 s.h. of graduate courses before applying to a degree program.
No more than 15 s.h. may be transferred into this program. Courses with grades of "B-" through "F" are not transferable.
All students applying for admission to degree status are required to:
It is strongly recommended that students have:
Degree Requirements: M.A. in Mathematics
The M.A. in mathematics will require 30 credits of graduate level mathematics, computer science, statistics, and/or mathematics education. Students will be required to take a sequence in abstract algebra, a sequence in modern analysis, a graduate seminar course, and an independent study course in mathematics or mathematics education. The program will culminate with either a project or a comprehensive examination. Accepted students must maintain a 3.0 grade point average in all coursework to remain in the program.
All College policies and procedures found in this Graduate Catalog will apply to students enrolled in this program.
