The Department of Mathematics offers a variety of undergraduate majors and minors, as well as several graduate degrees at the master's level.




This minor provides students with an increased understanding of, and competence in, mathematics. Building on a base of calculus and linear algebra, already required for many majors, the program leads students through an introductory proof course, a theoretical course, and an applications course.


Additional Academic Opportunities

Combined Bachelor's/Master's Degree

If you are getting close to satisfying all of the requirements for your Bachelor's degree in Math with time to spare, you may be able to leave Miami with a Master's degree in Mathematics! By carefully planning your program before or during your sophomore year, you can earn a Bachelor's degree in four years and a Master's degree in one more year.

Teach Mathematics

Licensure to teach mathematics in secondary schools is an integral part of the B.S. degree in Integrated Mathematics Education (offered by the College of Education, Health, and Society). Students who wish to combine teacher licensure with a major in the Department of Mathematics should apply for admission to a licensure cohort.

Course Requirements

Master of Science in Mathematics and More

Our program is small when compared to many Ph.D.-granting departments. We usually have about 20 graduate students at a time providing small classes with a great deal of personal interaction between students and faculty.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Critical Thinking: Students will develop critical thinking skills that enable them to determine the validity of a given argument and will be able to construct mathematical arguments independently.
  2. Content Knowledge: Students will demonstrate depth of knowledge in the core content areas of mathematics and apply content knowledge to solve complex mathematical problems.
  3. Communicating Mathematical Ideas: Students will demonstrate the ability to clearly and effectively communicate mathematical ideas in writing in a manner appropriate for an identified audience.
