M.A. in Mathematics
The Master of Arts program in Mathematics is designed to develop the student’s ability to work independently and to obtain basic knowledge in algebra, real and complex variables, and topology so that mathematics literature can be read with understanding and enjoyment. The successful completion of this program should prepare a student to enter a second-year doctoral program in mathematics, to begin a career as an industrial mathematician or as a faculty member at a junior or community college. For educators with initial certification in mathematics, this degree will also satisfy the requirements for professional certification in New York State. Program start dates: Fall or Spring (in certain cases).
