Program Description:
The Master of Arts in Mathematics Program is intended primarily for teachers or would -be teachers of secondary and tertiary mathematics course. This program is intended to those whose undergraduate preparation was not really a BS Mathematics degree but would like to teach, seeking a “mathematics content” (as opposed to a “teaching methods”) master’s degree program.
Qualification:
Aside from the general requirement for the master’s degree set forth by the College of Science, applicants of the MA Math program must have a bachelor’s degree with at least 9 units of calculus and geometry course.
Program Requirement:
Students admitted into the MA Math program must complete 34 units of course work, including a research paper and a one-unit graduate seminar. Students should also pass a comprehensive examination prior to graduation. The comprehensive examination is a written examination which covers algebra, analysis and a third area.
Disqualification from the Program:
A student is disqualified from the program if either (1) the student did not pass any of the courses in a particular semester; (2) the student did not achieve a GWA of at least 2.0 during the academic year; or (3) the student did not pass the comprehensive examination twice.
