Department of Mathematics and Philosophy

Congratulations to our students!


The Department of Mathematics and Philosophy would like to congratulate our 2020-2021 graduates of the master's program. They are joining an excellent group of alumni, and we hope to see them pursue the dreams that brought them here. We wish for their continued success.

Graduates from our master's program have been highly successful, entering reputable PhD programs or the job market. The document linked below lists many of our 2012-2019 MS graduates, along with their current positions.

Placement of our master's graduates

The mathematics master’s program encourages students to become involved in professional activities, including teaching, research, and projects, as an important part of their education. We seek to complement the interests of students with the opportunities we provide. Our master's students develop teaching skills, actively engage in research, and participate in various other professional activities.

Our master’s students attain the skills of modern teachers

Many of our graduate students assist in various face-to-face and online undergraduate mathematics and statistics courses. Teaching assistants (TAs) and teaching support assistants (TSAs) learn to manage their time and to be organized. They develop their communication skills and learn to be confident teaching. More than half of our graduate students teach at least one independent session of a mathematics course during their study here.

Current TAs and TSAs in the Department of Mathematics and Philosophy

Our master's students form an active research community.

The Department of Mathematics and Philosophy fosters an energetic research culture by encouraging students to present their research work at various venues. Graduate students share their work in various interdisciplinary settings and in diverse presentation formats. Many graduate students who go on to PhD programs complete a thesis.

Our master's students gain a well-rounded graduate experience

Our master's program encourages students to learn outside of the classroom to develop well-rounded graduates. Students can complete internships and industrial research projects, as well as acquire credentials, such as SAS software certification. Our master's students are also active in the Kappa Mu Epsilon national honor society and the department Math Club.
