Distance Education - M.S. in Mathematics
Available Programs
This 36-semester hour graduate program is designed for individuals with interests in mathematics, with a particular desire to teach in K-12 and community colleges or in computational math. Primarily this program is intended for individuals with with a solid background in mathematics, such as a degree in a mathematically related subject. However, others are encouraged to apply as well. Because Texas A&M offers the G6 classification, which is a postgraduate nondegree-seeking status, it is not necessary to enroll in graduate school to enjoy the benefits of the program.
Teaching Math OptionThe masters of Mathematics with a Teaching Option online degree program has are the same for requirements as for the synchronous degree. This degree
The degree program is fully online We are very proud of this program. It has currently graduated about 55 students. |
Computational Math OptionThe masters of Mathematics with the computational math Option online degree program has are the same requirements as synchronous degree. This degree
The degree program is fully online We are very excited about this new program, and although most but not all of the courses are in place just yet, courses will be offered regularly. |
To Apply
To enroll you must either apply to graduate school - or - complete a G6 application form. The latter is quickest, easiest, and least costly. In addition the course you take will transfer to the graduate program here, should you enroll later. The G6 application is now online. We recommend you apply through the Mathematics Department, however.
Distance Education Platforms
All courses will be taught over the Internet. Courses are listed with the section 7xx designation, e.g. MATH 629-700/720 indicates the distance version of Math 629 for in-state and out-of-state, respectively.
Course Examinations
The courses will all require student evaluations or examinations during the semester. The evaluations may be in the form of take-home comprehensive examinations, research projects, or semester projects. The evaluation instructions will be submitted either by traditional mail, email, downloadable web sites, or facsimile, at the discretion of the instructor. The uniformity and content of all examinations will be the same whether students are on or off campus.
Final Degree Program Examination
After completing all program requirements, all M.S. students will be required to complete a final examination.
