UT Tyler Department of Mathematics
The UT Tyler Department of Mathematics offers a program of study leading to the master of science in mathematics. This is a rigorous program of study consisting of 36 credit hours of graduate level coursework in both pure and applied mathematics.
Students may choose to do directed research and a thesis as six of these credit hours. In addition to completing the required coursework with a grade of B or better in all courses, all MS candidates must pass a written comprehensive examination to be awarded the MS degree. Students doing a thesis must give an oral presentation of the thesis.
- The typical applicant to this program has the equivalent of a bachelor's degree in mathematics.
- If a student does not have the equivalent of a bachelor's degree in mathematics but has had a significant number of mathematics courses, it may be possible for such a student to be admitted to the program with the requirement that additional leveling work must be satisfactorily completed.
The UT Tyler graduate mathematics program is intended to provide a broad and deep level of understanding of mathematics so that the student may continue studies at the PhD level, teach at the junior college level, or possess an advanced level of mathematical ability to work in industry.
