Recent Publications

Dr. Tim Ford, has written a new 
textbook entitles, Separable Algebra.
Due to be published on October 20, 2017,
this book presents a comprehensive
introduction to the theory of separable
algebras over commutative rings.
Azumaya algebras, the henselization of
local rings, and Galois theory are
rigorously introduced and treated.
Essential connections are drawn
between the theory of separable
algebras and Morita theory, the theory
of faithfully flat descent, cohomology,
derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices,
maximal orders, and class groups.

Master of Science in Teaching Mathematics

This graduate mathematics degree program with emphasis on issues of teaching, provides post-baccalaureate education both for certified secondary school teachers and those wanting to teach at the state college level.  This M.S.T. degree program does not provide teaching certification.

Entrance Requirement: Admission requirements for the M.S.T. program are the same as for the M.S. in Mathematics.  

Applicants without a mathematics degree must have taken a substantial amount of upper division mathematics, and will be required to complete MAS 4301, Modern Algebra, and MAA 4200, Modern Analysis, if their equivalents have not been taken.  See item [3] on our Frequently Asked Questions page for a list of required prerequisite coursework.

Degree Requirement:

This program requires 24 credits of mathematics courses and  6 credits of education courses at or above the 5000 level (Candidates without a valid secondary certificate or with less than two years of teaching experience might be required to complete a 6-credit internship).  The Mathematical Sciences Department offers one or two 6000-level classes specifically designed for the M.S.T. program each semester (including summers).

Candidates may also choose to write a 6-credit thesis on a (pre-approved) topic of mathematics in lieu of 6-credits of mathematics coursework.
