Tips for Current and Prospective Students

Current students:

The Jones College of Science, Engineering and Technology is offering its graduate students grants for research or travel. See here for how to apply.

Prospective students:

A Master of Science degree, with the flexibility to take up to 9 hours of coursework in fields related to mathematics (thus, in a department other than mathematics and statistics), may be suited to the needs of students who did not major in mathematics but have a strong mathematical background. For example, an ecomonics or finance major may work on a master's in mathematics as a way to prepare for further graduate work in this fiield. The Economics and Finance department has suggested courses (see here for the flyer) that a student may take to fulfill the "allied courses" requirement.
