The Department of Mathematics offers programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science and
Doctor of Philosophy in mathematics and in applied mathematics. Students may opt for the
concentration in computational mathematics, which is attached to the program in applied
mathematics. Through the Center for Research in Scientific Computation, which is housed in the
Department of Mathematics, students may participate in the industrial applied mathematics
program, a program of joint research endeavors with industrial and governmental partners.

Admissions Requirements: Applicants for admission should have an undergraduate or master's
degree in mathematics or the equivalent. This should include courses in advanced calculus,
modem algebra and linear algebra. Applicants with degrees in other subjects may be admitted but
may be required to take certain undergraduate courses in mathematics without receiving graduate
credit. It is recommended that applicants take the GRE Advanced Test in Mathematics.

Master of Science Requirements: In addition to course requirements, the M.S. degree requires a
written master's project for 3 hours credit.

Ph.D. Requirements: A student will typically take 50-60 semester hours of course credits for the
Ph.D. These courses include one semester of modem algebra and one semester of mathematical
analysis. The written preliminary examination consists of examinations in three selected areas of
mathematics. Prior to taking the preliminary oral examination, the student must demonstrate a
working knowledge of a foreign language. The research dissertation should represent a substantial
contribution to an area of mathematics or its applications.

Student Financial Support: Teaching assistantships and some research assistantships are
available. Teaching assistants benefit from a structured program of training in university-level
teaching.

other Information: The Department of Mathematics has more than twenty workstations devoted
exclusively to its graduate students. Students also have access to the high-performance computing
and visualization equipment at the North Carolina Supercomputer Center.

The Department of Mathematics, Science and Technology Education offers graduate programs in
technology education that leads to the degrees of Master of Science, Master of Education and
Doctor of Education. Students take courses in their educational specialty, in general professional
education and in a social science cognate area. Graduate programs in mathematics education and
science education lead to the degrees of Master of Science, Master of Education and Doctor of
Philosophy. Students take courses in their educational specialty in one of the teaching
specializations: biological sciences, chemistry, computer science, earth science, interdisciplinary
science, mathematics, physics or statistics.

Master's programs are offered leading to graduate-level (G) certification as a teacher of
mathematics, science, technology or occupational exploration at grades 6-9 or 9-12 for those who
have initial (A) certification. Programs are also available for those seeking advanced graduate-
level (AG) certification as a teacher or certification as a local vocational director. Students may
choose a program to prepare for teaching careers in post-secondary education.



166



Admission Requirements: Applicants for all of the M.S. and M.Ed, degrees and Ed.D. in
technology education may submit recent scores from the GRE General Test or on the Miller's
Analogy Test. Applicants for the Ph.D. in mathematics education or science education must
submit recent scores from the GRE General Test. Academic and professional background
necessary for admission differs by specific program.

Master's Degree Requirements: The master's degree programs require a minimum of 36
semester hours of graduate work. Students who elect the M.S. substitute up to 6 semester hours of
thesis research for part of the course load.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: (Ed.D.) A minimum of 90 semester hours of graduate work
beyond the baccalaureate degree is required including a minimum of 12 semester hours of
dissertation research. (Ph.D.) A minimum of 45 semester hours of course work, a minimum of 12
semester hours of dissertation research and one foreign language is required beyond the master's
degree requirements. For both degrees, students may be required to supplement their course work
with internships and/or other experiential activities to meet competencies.

Student Financial Support

A small number of teaching and research assistantships are available and out-of-state tuition
remission may be available for one year to students on assistantships.

The Department of Microbiology is in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and has a
unique blend of applied and basic research programs. The department offers courses of study and
research leading to the Ph.D., M.S. and Master of Microbiology degrees. The graduate program is
designed to prepare individuals for careers in academic, industrial or research institute settings.
Research in the department emphasizes study of fundamental biological processes, with several
programs having important biotechnological, environmental and medical applications.

Admission Requirements: Applications are invited from individuals holding B.S. or M.S.
degrees in the physical and life sciences. Applications should ideally be received in the department
before January 15 to be considered for Fall semester admission. A written statement should
describe the applicant's academic and career goals as well as their area of interest.

Master's Degree Requirements: The M.S. is a research-oriented degree requiring 30 credit hours
and a written thesis. For students wishing a more general educational background in microbiology
without the thesis requirement, the Master of Microbiology (M.M.) degree is offered. A first-year
core curriculum is required for all master's degree students. At least one semester of laboratory
instructorship is required.

Doctoral Degree Requirements: The Ph.D. program is designed for individuals desiring to
pursue careers in research and teaching. Students enroll in a core curriculum consisting of courses
in metabolic regulation/physiology, virology, immunology and molecular genetics. In addition, the
student, in consultation with and approval by his/her advisory committee, may select elective
