Master of Science in Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics at The Graduate School of the College of Charleston offers a graduate degree program leading to a Master of Science in Mathematics. The program prepares students for careers in industry, academia or government, or for doctoral studies. It also provides people in teaching and other professions with the means for career advancement or career change.Courses are offered in the summer and late afternoon/evening to accommodate working professionals. Classes are small, providing personal attention for students who can work closely on projects with individual faculty members. The graduate mathematics faculty is actively involved in a wide variety of research areas, including algebra, analysis, combinatorics, dynamical systems, geometry, logic, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, number theory, numerical analysis, probability, scientific computing, statistics and topology. The Department of Mathematics also offers a graduate certificate in statistics; see below.

Master of Education in Science and Math for Teachers
The School of Sciences and Mathematics and the School of Education, Health and Human Performance jointly offer a Master of Education in Science and Mathematics. This program offers graduate-level courses in the sciences, mathematics and education that address the needs of teachers and informal educators. The program's intention is to strengthen and broaden the practicing teacher's and informal educator's science, mathematics and education knowledge and understanding for use in elementary, middle, and high school classrooms and informal source centers. It also provides a solid background for those who might eventually pursue a doctoral degree in science and mathematics education.Content courses in science and mathematics will be offered by faculty in the discipline using pedagogical practices consistent with the discipline and appropriate for the PK–12 classroom curriculum. Integrated courses that blend several disciplines along a theme line and education content courses complement the science and mathematics content component of the program by emphasizing the interrelationships that exist among the science and mathematics content areas across the PK–12 curriculum.
