Mathematics & Computer Science

The MA in Mathematics provides a solid background in basic graduate-level mathematics. It prepares students for advanced graduate study, post-secondary teaching, or work in industry or government. Our graduates have been very successful in obtaining teaching jobs at community colleges or by following our program with a Ph.D. Elective courses allow specialized study in areas such as pure mathematics, applied mathematics and computer sciences.
