About the Program
The Master of Arts in Mathematics program provides an opportunity for individuals to pursue advanced study in mathematics and to develop skills that can lead to success in today's technologically oriented society. Whether the goal involves applying mathematics to solve problems in business and industry, teaching in higher education or preparing for further graduate study in mathematics or related fields, this program enables each student to pursue a course of study that is appropriate for his or her interests.
The program has been of special interest to high school teachers seeking to enrich their knowledge of mathematics. The graduate course work will fill gaps and broaden and extend the undergraduate mathematics background of each student. There is sufficient flexibility in the program for students to tailor the curriculum to meet their needs.
Rowan University undergraduates majoring in the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics program can apply to the accelerated B.S./M.A. program allowing them to earn both the B.S. and M.A. degrees in five years.
- Total semester hours required for program completion: 30 Semester Hours (s.h.)
- In addition to the course requirements outlined below, students will pass a comprehensive examination given by the Department of Mathematics.
- Thesis Requirement: None
