An advanced degree in mathematics prepares students for a career in teaching, research, and various technical fields.
Master of Arts in Teaching
The M.A.T. degree is designed primarily for certified teachers who wish to strengthen their subject matter preparation (Receiving this degree does not give certification in high school teaching). We offer this degree on campus and through distance learning.
Master of Science
The M.S. degree prepares students to enter a Ph.D. program, to teach at some colleges, and for many positions in business and industry. We offer a non-thesis and thesis option for our M.S. program, both of which can be completed in two years.
Doctor of Philosophy
A Ph.D. in mathematics gives you the opportunity to teach mathematics at the university level (with the opportunity for original research).
Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
The University of Idaho also has strong departments of biology, computer science, and several engineering disciplines. Several of our faculty members and graduate students participate in our interdisciplinary graduate program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
