Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Mathematics
A new Graduate Certificate Program in Mathematics (GCPM) will begin accepting applications for students who wish to begin the program in Fall 2012. For this reason, the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Mathematics (PBCPM) will no longer be accepting new applications. Current PBCPM students can complete the program by satisfying Program Requirements.
Information on the new Graduate Certificate Program in Mathematics and the new Graduate Certificate Program in Financial Mathematics will be available in Spring 2012.
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.
The five courses that make up the program are divided between advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate work. If it is appropriate academically and fits a student's career goals, the department may approve mild 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 undergraduate and 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.
