The Master of Arts program in Mathematics is designed to develop the student’s ability to work independently and to obtain basic knowledge in algebra, real and complex variables, and topology so that mathematics literature can be read with understanding and enjoyment. The successful completion of this program should prepare a student to enter a second-year doctoral program in mathematics, to begin a career as an industrial mathematician or as a faculty member at a junior or community college. Program start dates: Fall or Spring (in certain cases).

Testimonials

"I was accepted to all but three Ph.D. programs I applied to. I feel very fortunate to be in this position, [with] so many great offers from excellent schools. I would recommend a stats program to any BA/MA student interested in furthering their education through a degree that’s not math as they’ll be highly qualified and prepared. That stance has only been further confirmed as I talk to faculty in different statistics departments." — Justin J. Raimondi, Class of 2014

"As a somewhat sheltered student through high school, I found that the mathematics faculty at SUNY Potsdam nurtured me carefully, providing the support I needed to develop confidence in the content area, and to deepen my love of mathematics. After graduating from the BA/MA program, I have taught successfully at the high school and college levels for nearly 30 years." —Donald C. Straight, Class of 1988

Ellen Lehet

2354.jpg Ellen Lehet is currently working on her MA in Mathematics, with a primary focus on her seminar work, Functional Analysis. She started her Master's program last year and will be graduating in May 2015. Ellen also obtained her Bachelor's degree from SUNY Potsdam in Mathematics. Both of her parents are alumni of Potsdam as well.

Originally from Connecticut, Ellen loves the town of Potsdam and really appreciates the supportive and friendly atmosphere of the staff on campus, as well as the excellent food. Specifically in the Mathematics program, Ellen really enjoys the closeness of the students. Everyone is very supportive and close knit; they even have tea time on Thursday's to discuss their weeks and projects.

"Potsdam, as a whole, is a great place to take time to develop and learn the material well and everyone is very supportive," she says.

After graduating, Ellen hopes to pursue her PhD in Mathematics and would like to eventually teach.
