Read the UNI Catalog description:

The major in Mathematics is available in three emphases: Mathematics, Secondary Teaching, and Community College Teaching.

Only graduate courses (course numbers 5000 or above) will apply to a graduate degree, even if the undergraduate course number (4999 or less) is listed. No exceptions will be made.

The Mathematics emphasis is available on the thesis and non-thesis options. A minimum of 36 hours is required for the thesis option, including 6 hours of MATH 6299 (800:299) and a minimum of 15 additional hours of 200/6000-level course work. A minimum of 32 hours is required for the non-thesis option, including a minimum of 2 hours of MATH 6299 (800:299) and a minimum of 15 additional hours of 200/6000-level course work.

The Secondary Teaching emphasis is offered on a non-thesis option only; a minimum of 32 hours, including a minimum of 18 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required.

The Community College Teaching emphasis is offered on a non-thesis option only; a minimum of 33 hours, including a minimum of 15 hours of 200/6000-level course work is required.

Students interested in this program must submit a completed Application for Admission to Graduate Study and should contact the Department of Mathematics for other admission requirements. Graduate information and application for graduate admission can be found at www.grad.uni.edu/admission.

The Graduate Record Examination (General Test) is not required for admission to the program.

Courses taken to satisfy B.A. requirements may not be repeated to count toward the graduate program.

Successful completion of a final written comprehensive examination is required for the non-thesis option on the Mathematics emphasis only.
