OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the College of Mathematics are consistence with the purpose and philosophy of the American Global University (AGU). The College offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs with a variety of options designed to prepare students for technical profession in industry, business, government and educational environments that involve mathematics. These highly technical professions include programmer, modular, analyst, optimizer, educator, actuary and statistician.

Mathematics, "the mother of science." - Plato. The sharp growth of technology and the extensive development of science in the last quarter of the twentieth century are without any doubt due to the true applications of mathematics. Applied Mathematics has filled the gap between mathematics and other disciplines which existed in the past. Today everyone who intends to enter the infinite world of science must be familiar with the language of mathematics.

UNDERGRADUATE GENERAL EDUCATION COURSE REQUIREMENTS

The general education program is designed to ensure that all American Global University graduates have a basic degree requirements.

 

 

Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

TopTHE UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM

This program designed for the students who intend to achieve a true liberal arts education in mathematics and excellent preparation for entrance to professional schools of law, medicine or business.

PREREQUISITES
A high school diploma or equivalent and demonstrate the ability to succeed in undergraduate study in mathematics

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
Transfer of credit from another accredited/acceptable institution is allowed subject to the approval of the Chairperson of the Mathematics Department. The student must complete a minimum of 40 credit units while enrolled at the AGU. The total semester units in general education required for graduation is dependent upon the past experience of the applicant.

A student may choose one of the following options:

Option 1. Mathematics:

In addition to the core requirements, the student must complete at least 6 courses at the 300-400 level including Discrete Mathematics II (MAT 355) and either Advanced Calculus I (MAT 377) or Real Analysis I (MAT 414) and Topology I (MAT 455).

Option 2. Teacher Certificate in Mathematics:

In addition to the core requirements, the student must complete at least 6 courses at the 300-400 level including Applied Number Theory (MAT 305), Principles of Teaching Mathematics (MAT 315), college Geometry (MAT 325), and either Advanced Calculus I (MAT 377) or Real Analysis I (MAT 414).

THE GRADUATE PROGRAM

Master of Arts in Mathematics

Top

The Master of Arts in Mathematics is a graduate degree track including an option designed for secondary and community college teachers, and an option for those who intend to pursue their graduate studies towards a Ph.D. degree in mathematics.

 

Master of Science in Mathematics

TopThe Master of Science in Mathematics is a graduate degree track including an option designed to

PREREQUISITES
Have a bachelor's degree or equivalent in mathematics with a grade average of at least "C" in each of major courses.


PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
Complete a minimum of 33 credit units for the M.A. degree and 36 credit units for the M.S. degree with an average of at least "B".

A minimum of 18 credit units must be completed while enrolled at AGU.

Optional master's thesis for a total of 6 credit hours must be completed and approved by the thesis committee composed three professors, including the thesis advisor, the dean of the College of Mathematics, and one other.


Doctor of Philosophy in Mathematics

Top

The College of Mathematics offers Ph.D. degrees in mathematics and applied mathematics. The degree programs are intended for students with superior mathematical ability and are designed to ensure that the student acquires a fairly broad background in mathematics with a deep concentration in some specific area of his/her interest.

PREREQUISITES
Students must take enough graduate courses to be prepared for the Ph.D. qualifying exam. A master's degree is NOT required for entering the Ph.D. program.


PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
Ph.D. Qualifying Exam: Ph.D. candidates are required to take a qualifying exam. The exam covers three subjects including Real Analysis (MAT 514 & MAT 515). The student will choose two other subjects and take one sequence of two courses in each subject from the following list.

Functional Analysis (MAT 518-618)
Complex Analysis (MAT 520-620)
Differential Geometry (MAT 530-630)
Numerical Analysis (MAT 535-635)
Matrix Algebra (MAT 541-641)
Abstract Algebra (MAT 547-647)
Topology (MAT 555-655)
Ordinary Differential Equations (MAT 565-665)
Partial Differential Equations (MAT 566-666)
Probability and Statistics (MAT 570-670).

The three sequences may be the follow-ups of the core courses. The student is given three chances to pass the qualifying exam.

Ph.D. Dissertation: After passing the qualifying exam, the student chooses a research advisor among the College of Mathematics faculty who supervises the student's independent research work through the completion of his/her dissertation. The dissertation must be original and unique in the field of mathematics. Finally, the student will defend his/her dissertation before the Defense Committee which is composed of the research advisor (committee's chair), the Dean of College of Mathematics and one other professor.
