Graduate Degrees & Programs
The Math Department at UCCS is home to a vibrant graduate program with faculty mentors specialized in a variety of both pure and applied mathematical fields; paid teaching opportunities for qualified graduate teaching fellows; cutting-edge colloquia, conferences, and lecture series; opportunities to gain additional experience with current mathematical topics through weekly applications seminars; and community engagement experiences for those interested.
Master of Science (MS) in Applied Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics offers a strong graduate program leading to the Master of Science (MS) in Applied Mathematics. Specific areas of study currently available include probability and statistics, differential equations, applied analysis, algebra, and coding theory. Students may select a thesis or non-thesis option for the MS. For more information on this graduate program, please contact the department's Graduate Chair.
Students can either follow a general track for the MS degree or tailor their curriculum by choosing one of four tracks:
- PhD Preparation
- Applied and Computational Mathematics
- Business and Management
