Mathematics, M.S.

The University of West Florida Department of Mathematics and Statistics is proud to offer a synchronous, fully online masters degree in mathematics using Elluminate web conferencing software. Utilizing this free software, students can participate in graduate courses in real-time on their personal computers. Because of this real-time, interactive instruction, each student receives personal attention just like they would if they attended the class in our main campus in Pensacola, Fl. All the courses are offered after 4:00 p.m. Central Time. Course Schedule.

The Master of Science Mathematics program offers students who hold a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, statistics, or related fields an opportunity to broaden their knowledge in several fields of mathematics, statistics, and their applications. The M.S. Math program is designed for students seeking careers in science, business, industry, or government; for students who want to teach in high schools or at the community college level; or for students who plan to pursue doctoral studies. The M.S. Math program offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics permits students considerable flexibility in choosing courses. For example, students who want to seeking careers in financial/investment industries, banks, insurance companies, or government may choose more statistics courses that emphasize the use, adoption, and development of statistical methods and state-of-the-art computer technology in the analysis of data from problems in all fields of study.

“Why aren’t we giving our students a chance to even hear about these things, let alone giving them an opportunity to actually do some mathematics, and to come up with their own ideas, opinions, and reactions? What other subject is routinely taught without any mention of its history, philosophy, thematic development, aesthetic criteria, and current status? What other subject shuns its primary sources— beautiful works of art by some of the most creative minds in history— in favor of third-rate textbook bastardizations?”
