Graduate Programs

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers several degree options for students interested in pursuing graduate-level study.

Current DePaul undergraduates can apply to enter the combined degree program.

Applied Mathematics (MS) and Applied Statistics (MS)

The Applied Mathematics (MS) and Applied Statistics (MS) graduate programs are designed to provide students with a strong quantitative background for employment in business, industry, or government. The programs also provide a solid foundation for students interested in pursuing PhD-level graduate work in Applied Mathematics or Applied Statistics. Coursework for these programs is offered on weekday evenings at DePaul's Lincoln Park campus.

Mathematics Education (MA) and Mathematics for Teaching (MS)

The Mathematics Education (MA) and Mathematics for Teaching (MS) graduate programs are designed for current and prospective teachers of Mathematics at the secondary and community college levels, including career-changers who have not previously completed a degree in Mathematics. Coursework for these programs is offered on weekends at DePaul's Lincoln Park campus. Click here to download the tentative course schedule for Summer 2020 and Autumn 2020.

Pure Mathematics (MS)

The graduate program in Pure Mathematics (MS) is designed for students whose career goals will be furthered by graduate-level training in mathematics, including students who plan to pursue a PhD in Mathematics or a closely-related field. Coursework for this program is offered on weekday evenings at DePaul's Lincoln Park campus.

A limited number of tuition waivers are awarded each year on a competitive basis to students in the Pure Mathematics program. Additionally, the Department of Mathematical Sciences frequently hires students from the Pure Mathematics program to be Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) to conduct recitation sections in algebra and calculus. These teaching assistantships provide students with valuable experience teaching mathematics at the college level. For more information about tuition waivers or teaching assistantship opportunities, please complete the Graduate Assistantship and Tuition Waiver application form, and submit it to the graduate program director Yevgenia Kashina (ykashina@depaul.edu).
