For students in the PhD program:


o               After about 2 years, you will have satisfied the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Mathematics (32 hours of coursework, with certain requirements).

o               If you have a Master`s degree in Mathematics from another university, you cannot receive this degree from the University of Illinois.

o               To receive the MS in Mathematics, you will just sign up in the Math Graduate Office, 257 Altgeld Hall.

o               Courses which are counted for your MS in Mathematics will also count for the PhD in Mathematics.

o               If you are interested in receiving the MS in Applied Mathematics or the MS in the Teaching of Mathematics instead of the MS in Mathematics, please see Karen Mortensen. These programs have different requirements.
