Mathematics Graduate Programs
The Mathematics department offers two graduate programs:
This program is designed for in-service, secondary mathematics teachers who want further study in the discipline, teachers who aspire to become master teachers in their own school district, and for those who want to teach mathematics in a community college.
This program may be completed on either a full-time or part-time basis. Qualified undergraduates may begin graduate classes as upper classmen while at Manhattan College, thereby enabling completion of the M.S. degree in a single postgraduate year.
Required Graduate Courses for the MS in Mathematics:
- MATG 632 - Statistical Inference or MATG 633 - Seminar for Mathematics Education
- MATG 642 - Number Theory
- MATG 688 - Analysis II or MATG 690 - Complex Analysis
- MATG 671 - Linear Algebra II or MATG 678 Algebra II
- MATG 791 - Graduate Colloquium and MATG 792 Graduate Colloquium
- MATG 699 - Research Seminar
- plus 12 additional elective credits of graduate mathematics (MATG 600-799)
This program allows students to earn both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in five years. The program is designed for Manhattan College undergraduate students in the School of Education who are seeking certification to become a mathematics teacher for grades 7-12. The program leads to professional certification in Adolescence Education Mathematics upon completion of three years of teaching experience.
After completing requirements for both the B.S. and initial certification in their fourth year of study, students pursue a fifth year of graduate mathematics courses in the School of Science. Students also participate in departmental seminars and colloquia.
