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
THE
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 300400 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 300400 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).
Bachelor of Science in Mathematics
THE
UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAM
This program is more technically oriented; provides solid
preparation for the students who intend to work and/or pursue their
education in pure or applied mathematics.
PREREQUISITES

complete at least 7 courses at the 300400 level including Probability
and Statistics II (MAT 370) and Advanced Calculus I (MAT 377).
Minor in Mathematics:
A minor in mathematics requires 17 credit units
in mathematics including Calculus I & II (MAT 241 & 242), Linear
Algebra (MAT 250) and 6 credit units at 300400 level with a grade of
"C" or higher.
THE GRADUATE PROGRAM
Master of Arts in Mathematics
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
The
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
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 518618)
Complex
Analysis (MAT 520620)
Differential
Geometry (MAT 530630)
Numerical
Analysis (MAT 535635)
Matrix
Algebra (MAT 541641)
Abstract
Algebra (MAT 547647)
Topology
(MAT 555655)
Ordinary
Differential Equations (MAT 565665)
Partial
Differential Equations (MAT 566666)
Probability
and Statistics (MAT 570670).
The
three sequences may be the followups 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.
