MS in Mathematics Admissions Requirements
Students entering the Master of Science in Mathematics program must have a cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 (out of a possible 4.0). They must submit a letter of application including a statement of personal interest in pursuing a master’s degree in mathematics, three professional or academic letters of reference, and must otherwise meet the general Governors State University requirements for admission to graduate study. Students seeking admission to the GSU Master of Science in Mathematics program with a GPA lower than 2.75 may petition to the graduate program coordinator for admission.
Students may apply for the Master of Science in Mathematics program at Governors State University with a baccalaureate degree in any field from an accredited university. An undergraduate major in mathematics, actuarial science, engineering, business, science, or computer science is recommended. Students must have completed, with a grade of “C” or higher, a three-semester sequence in calculus, a course in modern algebra, a course in linear algebra, and a course in analysis. Students may be conditionally admitted if they do not meet the undergraduate prerequisites for the graduate core courses.
