Program Overview 
The Graduate Program in mathematics offers Master’s degree in Pure MathematicsIndustrial/Applied MathematicsMathematical Computer Science and Teaching in Mathematical Sciences.

The requirements to start a Masters in Mathematics at Rutgers are the following:

  •  A Bachelors degree in science or mathematics, with a GPA greater than 3.
  •  GRE
  •  2 letters of recommendation.

If your degree is not in science/mathematics, then you need to have taken Calculus I, II and III, and Differential equations and/or Linear Algebra. These courses could be taken anywhere where they are offered. The courses that are offered usually run either once a week from 6-8:40pm or 2 times a week from 4:30-5:50pm, so that people who work full time can attend the classes.

Masters of Business and Science (M.B.S.) Program:

Rutgers is helping professionals respond to growing international competition in science innovation with a new degree: the Master of Business and Science (M.B.S.).

As part of a national movement of professional science master’s programs, the M.B.S. program brings together the Master of Science and the master of business administration degrees, with 24 credits in the sciences and 19 credits in business. Business classes introduce students to the management of science and technology. Course offerings include finance and accounting, marketing, communication and leadership, management of science and technology, ethics, and a capstone course covering entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship.

Rutgers–Camden offers two concentrations within this program: Actuarial Sciences and Industrial Mathematics.

MS program:

The graduate program in mathematical sciences offers a master’s degree with tracks in pure mathematics, mathematics teaching, mathematical computer science, and industrial/applied mathematics. The program is designed for industry professionals who wish to update their skills; high school teachers who wish to expand their knowledge; or those who seek the intellectual challenge of continuing their mathematical studies.

The Mathematical Sciences department uses state-of-the-art computational and visualization tools for instruction. Evening classes meet once a week to accommodate students who work or have other daytime obligations.
