Graduate Certificate in Mathematics
The aim of this certificate program is to strengthen the mathematical backgrounds of students so that our graduates are well positioned to pursue further study in a variety of quantitative fields. This program is ideal, for instance, for those planning to apply to top graduate programs in economics or finance and who wish they had taken more math during their undergraduate years. It is also ideal for those who want to pursue graduate study in mathematics but do not yet have sufficient background.
Four graduate level courses make up the program. If it is appropriate academically and fits a student's career goals, the department may approve variations on the Program Requirements. For instance, in place of one of the standard options, we may accept a different course in mathematics or in a related field (e.g., statistics).
The courses that make up this program are part of our regular graduate offerings. As much as possible, the department will schedule these courses around the lunch hour or after 5 p.m. for the convenience of those in the program.
The application deadline for Fall admission is July 15 (April 15 for international applicants requiring a student visa). The application deadline for Spring admission is November 15 (September 15 for international applicants requiring a student visa).
