There are four programs leading to the Master’s Degree in Mathematics. These programs include:
Students enrolled in a Ph.D. or Master's program outside of the Mathematics Department who have completed at least one term of coursework and are in good academic standing are eligible to apply for a dual degree with the Mathematics Master's (if you are interested in doing a dual degree with the Quantitative Finance & Risk Management Master's, visit the QF&RM Admissions FAQs page).
Applying to pursue a dual degree is a different application process than the online admissions system used for external applicants. Any current University of Michigan graduate student interested in doing a dual degree with the Mathematics Master's should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, and to obtain the application materials. Students who have just graduated from a graduate program are not eligible to apply for a dual degree program.
The Dual Degree program has the following expectations:
If you are in the dual degree program, and you anticipate not being able to meet any of these expectations, you must contact the department via email (email@example.com). Students who fail to meet the above expectations may be discontinued from the Mathematics Master’s program.
