Master of Science in Mathematics

View our graduate program flyer.

TCU’s Master of Science (MS) degree in mathematics features both a pure and an applied track. The pure track primarily prepares students for doctoral work in mathematics, whereas the applied track equips students with mathematical tools applicable in industry. The program provides a broad knowledge of mathematics and its history, teaches problem solving skills and exposes students to the general philosophy of mathematics. The pure track includes 36 hours of graduate mathematics courses; the applied track allows up to six hours of approved graduate science courses to count toward the 36-hour total. Class sizes are small and the courses are scheduled in a flexible manner to accommodate part-time students. Award-winning teachers, faculty expertise in a wide range of research areas and abundant opportunities for one-to-one student and faculty interaction characterize our program. All of our graduate students are trained in data science and mathematical computation.

We do not currently provide financial aid to MS students. Students may see costs associated to a full load of 9 hours per semester here. For any further questions, please contact the graduate director Dr. Ken Richardson (

To apply for admission, you use the online application process (see the link on this page). The application includes transcripts from all college work, a CV/resume, three recommendation letters from professors, and a personal statement of purpose; GRE General Test scores are recommended. The application deadline for Fall admission is January 1 of the relevant year, and applications received after that will also be considered if not all positions have been filled.
