Search any job postings and you will find several employment listings that specifically require a master’s degree in mathematics or a related field. Supplementing the College’s established math catalog, three new programs in applied mathematics – data analytics, will be offered beginning in the fall 2015 semester.
The three new programs are a master’s program in applied mathematics – data analytics; a five-year program that includes a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and master’s degree in applied mathematics – data analytics; and an 18-credit post-baccalaureate program in applied mathematics – data analytics.
The applied mathematics – data analytics programs are based on an innovative curriculum of mathematics content courses chosen to address important needs by industry. The master’s program has been designed for students with a strong background in mathematics and a major in a quantitative field who wish to prepare for careers in business, industry or government by developing experience with computational software packages, statistical methodology and modeling, data analytics and operations research. Students also will have the opportunity to take part in a capstone experience involving either research or an internship.
The programs are currently accepting applications for full-time and part-time study, beginning in the fall 2015 semester. For more information, contact Kathryn Weld, Ph.D., professor of mathematics and graduate director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (718) 862-7152.
