The Graduate Record Examination (General Test) is not required for admission to the program.

Successful completion of a final written comprehensive examination is required for the non-thesis option.


Master of Arts in Mathematics (Non-Teaching Emphasis) 
The Master of Arts in (pure) Mathematics track in the Master of Arts in Mathematics degree is designed to prepare students wishing to pursue more advanced studies in mathematics at the Ph.D. level or to work in the public or private sector. A major highlight of the track is its size: it is small enough to provide a high degree of individual attention to students, and yet large enough to be able to regularly offer the standard courses that form the core of a typical master's degree program.

Master of Arts in Mathematics (Secondary Teaching Emphasis) 

We have had a Master of Arts program for secondary teachers as long as the department has offered graduate degrees. The Master of Arts in Mathematics (Secondary Teaching Emphasis) is designed to extend the content and pedagogical knowledge of secondary school mathematics teachers. The program incorporates a dynamic relationship between theory and practice, and focuses on the development of teachers as reflective practitioners and lead teachers. The program is offered at a distance using a cohort model in which groups of students move through the coursework together, with courses delivered online via eLearning. Some summer courses may require limited on-campus attendance, in addition to eLearning. The program is offered as a non-thesis option only, however requires a culminating research paper.  Click here https://uni.edu/continuinged/distance/secondary-math to learn more about the program, including FAQs and steps to apply.

 

Master of Arts in Mathematics (Community College Teaching Emphasis)

The Master of Arts in Mathematics (Community College Teaching Emphasis) is designed to serve those preparing for a career in community college teaching or working professionals seeking career advancement. This is a mathematically robust degree program while program content, understandings and experiences are directly and explicitly linked to the world of practice. The program is offered at a distance using a cohort model in which groups of students move through the coursework together, with courses delivered online via eLearning. Some summer courses may require limited on-campus attendance, in addition to eLearning. The program is offered on a non-thesis option only, however requires a culminating research paper.  Click here https://uni.edu/continuinged/distance/comm-coll-math to learn more about the program, including FAQs and steps to apply.
