Master of Science
The department offers the Master of Science degree with thesis and non-thesis tracks which can be completed in as little as 15 months. Students completing the M.S. in Mathematics also receive preparatory work for pursuing a doctoral degree in mathematics or mathematics education.
Students choose to specialize in one of the following fields
- Data Mining. This program offers a 25,000 dollar internship.
- Pure and Applied Mathematics. This program offers up to an 11,000 dollar teaching assistantship.
- Mathematics Education. This program offers up to an 11,000 dollar teaching assistantship.
Please scroll down for information about all of our degree options.
Applications are invited for M.S. in mathematics with a concentration in data mining at Tarleton State University – Texas A&M University System. The course of study is technical preparation for working in a production environment using applied mathematics and advanced analytics (data mining). The unique opportunity in this degree offering is training in a data mining research center that was awarded Top 10 Data Mining Case Study in 2010 by Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) at the International Meeting in Sydney.
Research Assistantships are available for qualified applicants at $25,000 per year. Applicants must have or be able to obtain a U.S. government security clearance (sensitive but not Secret). Prerequisite is a degree in mathematics, statistics, or a closely allied field with undergraduate courses in Real Analysis, Abstract Algebra, Linear Algebra and Calculus Based Statistics. Prefer applicants who have training in statistics, computer programming, and database/data warehouse design and implementation. Experience with very large databases (data warehouses) is desired but not required.
Acceptance into this program is a two step process.
- Download the departmental application for assistantship. Fill and submit via fax or regular mail to the department. Please include unofficial transcripts from all schools attended.
- Apply to Graduate School
