The M.S. program is designed to give students mathematical knowledge and skills which arise in today's ever more technologically focused economy. Many of our M.S. graduates work in the Cleveland area at companies such as Ameritech, Prudential Insurance and NASA. Others teach at area high schools or at two-year colleges such as Cuyahoga Community College, Lorain Community College, the Middletown Branch of Miami University and Rock Valley College (Rockford Ill). In order to make it easier for students to enter the program and work at the same time, courses are given from 4:00--5:50 pm or 6:00--7:50 pm on MW or TTH.
In order to enter the M.S. program, an applicant must have 8 semester or 12 quarter hours of Mathematics past differential equations. This requirement is usually achieved by almost all students having an undergraduate background in a technical discipline. Even if the 12 hour requirement is not met, a person may, for instance, enter the program by starting as a non-degree student and achieving a grade of B or better in 3 approved graduate classes.
