Information for Part-Time Online Students

Students interested in completing the program of study for the MA in Mathematics during evening and/or weekend times via attending classes through video-conferencing can apply to the distance education version of the program through the graduate school.

Most  students attending in this way finish in three to four years, depending on the number of courses taken at one time.

The department offers three to five courses from the program each calendar year in the late afternoon, evening or weekend.  We allow students to attend via the zoom interactive video conferencing system. The required courses will rotate as indicated in the table below (2020-21 is "year B"), with several electives planned each year as well. Secondary concentrators are required to take several courses from the Reich College of Education, all of which are available as online courses.

Students attending in this way are not eligible for graduate assistantships or fellowships, as those are reserved for full-time, on-campus students.
