Degree Requirements

The primary purpose of the M.A. program is to prepare students to teach mathematics at the secondary school and junior/community college levels. In the M.A. program, all courses are offered online and the students do not need to come to our campus.

The program requires 33 semester hours of course work including:

  •   A minimum of 21 semester hours in mathematics.
  •  Completion of at least one course in each of the groups: Algebra, Analysis, Probability Statistics, and Applied Mathematics.
  •  A 3-semester hour Master’s tutorial.
  •  A maximum of 9 semester hours of approved elective course work (elective courses are optional).

 While not all NSM Departments currently offer the M.A. option, interested applicants are encouraged to contact individual departments for further information. The M.A. programs are viewed as terminal degree programs.
