In Memory of Dr. Viola-Prioli

Dr. Viola-Prioli 

Master of Science in Mathematics

This program is designed to provide a foundation for mathematical work in scientific or technical fields as well as for doctoral study in mathematics. It should normally take a full-time student two years to complete.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

A Bachelor's degree in Mathematics (or equivalent coursework) with at least 3.0 GPA (or equivalent), three letters of recommendation documenting the applicant's prior work in mathematics focusing on preparation and suitability for success in graduate-level mathematics courses, a quantitative general GRE (revised) score of at least 155, and approval of the departmental graduate committee. In addition, it is recommended to include scores of the GRE subject test mathematics as part of the application package.

If your undergraduate major is not in Mathematics, see our Frequently Asked Questions page for a list of required prerequisite coursework.
