Mathematical Sciences

The mathematics graduate program, in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, offers Pure Math or Applied Math degrees of:

  • Master of Arts (M.A.)
  • Master of Science (M.S.)
  • Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)

The Department also offers Math for Secondary Teachers degree of:

  • Master of Arts (M.A.) 

The Master's program is intended for those students who want a professional education in mathematics beyond the bachelor's degree level. The Ph.D. program, in contrast, is designed for students interested in becoming professional scholars, college and university teachers, or independent workers in private, industrial or government research institutions. Our Ph.D. program is one of six mathematics Ph.D. programs in the state public university system, and one of only two in northeast Ohio. In broad terms, the faculty areas of research lie in functional analysis and operator theory, Lie representation theory, approximation theory, finite groups, character theory, number theory, large scale systems of equations, numerical and scientific computation, and probability and stochastic processes.
