Eight graduate courses (32 semester hours of credit) are required for the degree: three required courses and five elective courses. The required courses provide a basic training in mathematical methods, and the elective courses include a wide variety of advanced topics. In addition, the program allows up to two of the elective courses to be taken outside the Department of Mathematics. No course can be used to satisfy both a requirement and an elective.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS
Required Courses
Three core courses: MATH 5131 Introduction to Mathematical Methods and Modeling; MATH 7343 Applied Statistics or MATH 7342 Mathematical Statistics; MATH 5101 Analysis 1 or MATH 5111 Algebra 1 or MATH 7241 Probability 1.

Five Electives
Three must be graduate courses offered by the Department of Mathematics. With approval of the graduate coordinator, two may be graduate courses outside the department.
