About this course
The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers courses in pure and applied mathematics leading to the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics. The Master of Science in Mathematics addresses the needs of professionals in the Washington, DC metropolitan area who are interested in pursuing an advanced degree. We have both full-time and part-time students. Many classes are offered in the evening (4:30pm or later) to accommodate students who are working full-time or part-time outside of our program. The program offers both a standard mathematics track and an emphasis in computational and applied mathematics.
- Completed online application for graduate study and application fee
- An earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education, or international equivalent, verified from official transcripts. Note: Due to admissions deadlines, graduate students are sometimes admitted before conferral of a bachelor’s degree. Students who are awaiting conferral of the degree will be permitted to register for their first semester. However, continuance in any graduate program requires an official transcript which verifies conferral of a bachelor’s degree.
- Official, original university transcripts and any earned degree certificates sent directly to Mason Office of Admissions in a sealed envelope from all universities attended.
- All transcripts from colleges or universities outside the United States must be translated into English, if applicable, and submitted for evaluation to the Mason Office of Admissions. Mason will provide evaluation service free of charge for all international transcripts, however, some programs may request an outside evaluation be completed. Because of volume, more time may be needed to process applications requiring a Mason evaluation. For expedited service, students can submit their documents to a recognized U.S. evaluation service at their own expense. For information on international transcript requirements, go here.
