    MA Program

    Thirty credits of course work are required for the MA degree, a minimum of 24 of which must be taken in residence. Students are required to obtain a grade of B on a written comprehensive examination covering Real Analysis, Functions of a Complex Variable and Modern Algebra. They are required to take this examination after accumulating 24 credits.

    PhD Program

    Sixty-credit hours of graduate-level course work are required for admission to the PhD program. The student will then take the Advanced Qualifying Examination and, if a passing grade is obtained, immediately begin thesis research. Another six credit-hours, usually spread over three years, will be earned in the course of completing the doctoral dissertation. The doctoral degree will be awarded upon the successful defense of the dissertation.
