Establish yourself as an expert in combining computer programming or statistics with mathematics. In both applied and theoretical courses, Roosevelt mathematics graduate students gain the personalized attention and expertise necessary to become leaders in their field.
The MS program in Mathematics is designed to train students in mathematics that can be readily applied to practical, real-world problems, including those in data science, probability, statistics, and computer science, and to allow students to pursue mathematics as an intellectual discipline.
Classes are small, with 10-25 students, which means you’ll receive personal attention.
Students complete projects with real data to determine results for industry partners.
As a mathematics graduate student, you will choose from the following concentrations:
Students who are interested in actuarial science can pursue an MS in Actuarial Science degree, which prepares students for certification by the Society of Actuaries (SOA) and the Casualty Actuarial Society (CAS).
Alumni have launched careers at:
Our recent alumni have held job titles including actuary, actuarial analyst, QA analyst, data analyst, financial analyst, predictive modeler, instructor, senior analytics consultant, senior associate, quality assurance and underwriter.
Other alumni have gone on to doctoral work at schools such as the University of Illinois at Chicago and have pursued doctoral degrees in mathematics education and statistics.
We offer an active Math Club, a colloquium series in mathematics and statistics, a day-long conference (the Math x-Position) each fall, and the Roosevelt Lectures in Math each spring. Students frequently attend and present at conferences.
I was born and raised in Florida and never had the opportunity to live in a big city. The program was great when I was there and has even gotten better.
Many problems in the world have a quantitative aspect to them. Through a master's degree in mathematics, you can develop advanced techniques to help you understand, model and solve them. A master's degree can also let you pass these skills on to others.
All students must complete three semesters of calculus (including multivariate calculus) and linear algebra prior to being admitted. The remaining prerequisite coursework varies by concentration and can be taken concurrently with graduate courses (if needed).
Prerequisites to the concentrations:
Students who need linear algebra, multivariate calculus, intro programming, accounting, or introduction to statistics may fulfill these requirements at community college.
