Graduate Studies

Miami has been recognized time and again as a "Public Ivy", offering tremendous educational opportunities. The Department has been recognized by its peers in similar fashion, often garnering national recognition and awards.

Our program is rather small when compared to many Ph.D.-granting departments. We usually have only 20 to 25 graduate students at any given time; hence classes are small with a great deal of personal interaction between students and faculty. Graduate student and faculty offices are not far from each other, facilitating this interaction.

Do you want to try your hand at teaching? Unlike many programs, here at Miami you will most likely have an opportunity to teach your own class—most likely College Algebra, Precalculus, or Calculus. This will give you an excellent taste of professional life in higher education.

The Department of Mathematics at Miami University offers a Master of Science degree in Mathematics. Located in Bachelor Hall in Oxford, Ohio, we are just a short drive from Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio. Our 25+ tenure track faculty have research interests in a wide range of areas within mathematics, including Algebra, Analysis, Applied Mathematics, Graph Theory and Combinatorics, Mathematics Education, Optimization, Set Theory, and Topology. Find out more about our faculty and their research interests.
