The degree requirements include the satisfactory completion of 30 hours of approved course work, of which at least 18 hours must be at the 8000 level. Math 8420 and 8410 are required, as is either Math 8190 (Masters Project) or Math 8090 (Masters Thesis). Students are expected to make up any required deficiencies in their undergraduate training in advanced calculus and abstract algebra. Students may not list the courses 7100, 7110, 7140 nor 7510. The successful completion of a Master's Project (Math 8190) or Master's Thesis (Math 8090) must be certified by a Master's Committee consisting of three members of the Mathematics regular faculty.

The following table suggests an order in which to take courses.

Some courses are not offered every semester. Below is a list of which semesters core course are available.
