About this program
The Graduate Certificate in Mathematics is an 18-credit-hour program consisting of elective graduate-level mathematics and statistics courses designed to deepen and broaden student’s knowledge, application, and appreciation of advanced mathematics and statistics.
The program is intended for:
- Post-baccalaureate students who seek to extend their undergraduate mathematics and statistics education.
- High school teachers who seek professional development, especially towards the qualification to teach college-level math courses in concurrent enrollment programs.
- Mathematics instructors who seek qualification to teach at colleges and universities.
- Individuals who seek professional advancement in their current careers.
Graduate courses are offered in the fall, spring, and summer sessions. Courses that meet during the fall and spring terms are 15 weeks in length and meet one evening per week, generally on Thursday evenings starting at 6:00 pm. Courses offered during the summer generally meet five days per week (MTWHF) for two weeks at the end of June.

- Demonstrate understanding of graduate-level topics arising in diverse area of mathematics and/or statistics.
- Communicate mathematical concepts in writing and orally at an advanced level.
- Demonstrate mathematical problem-solving skills at an advanced level.
Gainful employment programs are those "that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation." Public institutions are required to report this information for all undergraduate and graduate programs that are Title IV eligible and that lead to certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates or specialist awards. Degree programs at all levels are not considered to be gainful employment programs.
