# Programs & Requirements

## M.Ed. in Mathematics

This program requires a minimum of 27 hours of mathematics plus a minor selected from the approved minors. This degree does not have a thesis option. The mathematics courses are designed to prepare students to teach high school and community college.

Minimum undergraduate requirements:

- MATH 2471 Calculus I
- MATH 2472 Calculus II
- 9 hours of junior/senior mathematics courses

These requirements may be reduced if the applicant shows evidence of taking equivalent courses elsewhere. Students are required to make up background courses if they do not have sufficient undergraduate mathematics. This background work must be completed before enrolling in graduate courses.

## MS in mathematics

No concentration

This program requires a minimum of 24 semester hours plus a thesis or a minimum of 36 hours without a thesis. Non-thesis students who select the degree option with a minor will have a minimum of 27 hours in the major and a minimum of 9 hours in the minor. A student may select a minor or non-minor degree option.
