Mathematics prepares students for the demands of a modern global society where sophisticated, quantitative skills are required to solve challenging programs in science, engineering, business, education and government. Mathematicians are essential to the fields of computer science, engineering, bioinformatics, data mining, computer animation, economics, epidemiology, ecology and climatology.
The master’s degree is designed to prepare students for careers in practical problem solving and mathematical modeling through collaboration with other professionals such as chemists and materials scientists. These mathematicians work in many areas of business and industry including engineering, defense, research and development and other STEM-related fields.
The accelerated master of science degree programs for current TU undergraduate students provide a way for students to start taking graduate courses while completing an undergraduate degree. These students can enroll in up to nine graduate level courses their senior year as part of the undergraduate program that can potentially double count for undergraduate and graduate requirements. Professionals with a master’s degree earn higher salaries, receive additional job responsibilities and are more marketable for promotion in the workplace.
