Mathematics & Statistics Graduate Program


About Our Graduate Programs

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers:
  • a Master of Science degree;
  • a combined undergraduate/graduate program that enables a student to complete both degrees in a five year period. In this program a student can count up to 12 credit hours toward satisfying requirements for both the BA or BS and the MS in Mathematics;
  • financial aid is available for the M.S. degree, including teaching assistantships and part time teaching positions, scholarships, and out-of-state tuition remissions.
  • Other offerings include: the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Applied Statistics and the MS in Data Science (a joint program with the Department of Computer Science).
  • Catalog links for the programs can be found here.

Some of the MS Math graduates have gone on to earn a PhD in mathematics, statistics, or a related field. Other graduates go directly into their careers. College teaching is one career choice of our graduates, while others have obtained industrial employment in a variety of areas including business and finance, pharmaceuticals and biomedical development, health care, and engineering.

If you have a bachelor's degree (or are about to obtain one) in mathematics or a related field and are interested in a master's degree in mathematics, please consider applying to UNCW. I encourage you to contact me by phone (910-962-7635) or email if you have any questions about our program, or about any special circumstances you might have. I look forward to hearing from you.
