The program offers a thesis option for students planning to continue to a Ph.D. program in mathematics at a different university. Under close supervision, the student will complete research of a topic to be determined jointly by the student and thesis advisor, with the approval of the program director. The thesis advisor will be a graduate faculty member chosen by the student and approved by the program director. Once the student begins work on the thesis, continuous enrollment in either Thesis or Thesis Renewal is required for all fall and spring semesters until completion of the thesis. Summer enrollment is required if the student anticipates working on the thesis or completing his/her degree during either summer term. Note: A thesis process fee is assessed. Comprehensive Exam During the final semester of course work, the student will take the comprehensive exam. The exam will be administered by a committee of three graduate faculty recommended by the program director and approved by the dean of graduate studies. Time Limit All work required for a Master of Science in Mathematics degree must be completed within a period of five years from semester of first admission. Courses MATH 5101 History of Mathematics I The historical development of mathematics in a cultural context. Emphasis will be on the developments of algebra and analytical geometry up to the discovery of calculus. MATH 5102 History of Mathematics II The historical development of mathematics in a cultural context. Emphasis will be on the developments of differential and integral calculus.
