Program Advisor: Dr. Edoh Amiran, Bond Hall 220, 360-650-3487
The graduate program in mathematics is designed to meet the requirements of subsequent professional and academic work in advanced mathematics. Students are prepared to continue to further graduate studies or for professional employment in industry or in college teaching. The focus is on providing a strong and broad analytical foundation, together with sufficient flexibility to pursue particular interests and areas of application in greater depth.
The program prepares students for:
- Continuing further graduate studies, or
- Professional employment in industry, or
- College teaching.
To be eligible for admission to the MS program in mathematics, a student should have completed at least the following courses or the equivalent with grades of B or better: Math 224, 304, 312, 331, CS 141 or Math 307, and two math courses at the 400 level.
A student who has not completed all of these courses but who can demonstrate strong promise of the ability to succeed in the program may be admitted with special stipulations. In such cases, the graduate advisor will, in consultation with the student, specify the conditions to be satisfied by the student in order to fully qualify for the program.
