The MA-FAS (Master of Arts – Foundation of Advanced Studies) program helps prepare students for competitive Ph.D. level graduate programs and will enhance their chances for admittance to high-quality graduate schools. This Master’s program option is structured so that students with basic preparation from their undergraduate institutions can complete it in no more than two years.
The program has requirements for 30 graduate credits in Mathematics, including 12 credits in courses numbered 700 and above. There are several required courses, such as advanced analysis and algebra. The electives come from course covering the diverse mathematical spectrum, from linear algebra, splines and wavelets, linear programming methods, mathematical logic, mathematical biology, complex analysis, fourier analysis, stochastic processes, and more advanced topics.
Below is the break down of the course requirements:
