Mathematics, M.S.

The M.S. in Mathematics offers students who hold a bachelor’s in mathematics, statistics, or related fields an opportunity to broaden their knowledge in several fields of mathematics, statistics, and their applications. Students may concentrate on statistics or mathematics.

The Master of Science (MS) program boasts more students than any other university in the state of Florida and is the only program that can be taken fully online. This is a synchronous course delivery program, meaning that all courses offered through the master's in mathematical sciences program are taught in tandem with face-to-face courses using Collaborate, an online training and collaboration tool. Students are required to attend live lectures and two-way audio and video enables live interaction between the instructor and online students.

Student Perspective

“The UWF math/stat graduate program prepared me for a job in the banking industry by teaching me to think outside of the proverbial box. One can learn many problem-solving strategies from reading textbooks and articles, but in order to fully understand the concept, you must apply the idea or technique. The graduate program was an excellent place to do just that. The faculty provided encouragement and support and many opportunities to explore ideas and gain research experience.”  — Ashleigh Wetzel
