Introduction
The Department of Mathematics offers the Master of Arts in Mathematics M A the Certificate Program
in Data Mining D M and the Ph D in Mathematics with a concentration in the Teaching of College
Mathematics The M A degree program has the flexibility to prepare students for jobs in industry and
government or for teaching mathematics at the undergraduate level or to undertake doctoral work in
mathematics The Data Mining Certificate program is a one year interdisciplinary program designed to
give each student a comprehensive training in basic foundations advance knowledge and applications of
data mining The Ph D degree is a content based degree designed to develop well prepared teachers of
college mathematics who combine knowledge and skill in mathematics with a desire to teach it
effectively Coursework is broadly distributed across the various areas of mathematics and is intended to
help students achieve a level of sophistication in mathematical knowledge that will establish a
professional attitude about mathematics Emphasis on pedagogy includes two required courses in
mathematics education plus a year long internship
The department has an active faculty with particular research strengths in the areas of algebraic geometry
applied mathematics approximation theory combinatorics and graph theory differential geometry
functional analysis and operator theory mathematics education number theory and statistics Ph D
students may choose to write dissertations in mathematics applied mathematics statistics or collegiate
mathematics education
Classes are small allowing students to receive individual attention An active colloquium program draws
speakers with varied research interests from a wide range of locales Graduate student seminars give
students the opportunity to explore topics that extend beyond the required coursework Research groups
have strong links with science and engineering departments within Central Michigan University other
universities and industry Computing facilities within Pearce Hall where the department is located
include laboratories with Macintosh and PC computers
Being a Graduate Student
What does it mean to be a graduate student In general there are two main facets of graduate student life
The first is the role of being a student Since the pursuit of a graduate degree requires dedication to the
ideal that learning is a life long endeavor a graduate student is expected to place academic scholarship
above other aspects of life
The second facet of most graduate students lives is that of teaching Since most of our graduate students
teach as Graduate Teaching Assistants they work closely with undergraduate students which occupies a
significant amount of their time Duties related to this work include preparing lessons teaching classes
office hours tutoring in the Mathematics Assistance Center responding to student phone calls and or e
mails grading and reflecting on teaching For our Ph D students this philosophy is particularly
important since the Ph D program is specifically designed to prepare graduate students to take positions
in academia at primarily teaching institutions It is the balance of scholarship and teaching that can prove
to be a challenge to many beginning graduate students
The Role of the Academic Advisor
When a graduate student is admitted to a program they are assigned an academic advisor Your advisor
will be available to help you throughout your program of study Each graduate student must submit a
two year plan of study completed in consultation with their advisor every fall semester
The M A Advisor Worksheet and Ph D Advisor Worksheet can be found on line at
http www cst cmich edu mathematics academic programs graduate information for current graduate s
tudents shtml
You and your advisor together will also complete an Authorization of Graduate Degree Form which can
be downloaded from http www grad cmich edu which will list all the requirements you need to
complete in order to earn a degree
Transferring from the M A to the Ph D
In order to transfer from the M A to the Ph D program the student must complete a Request for Change
of Program form which can be downloaded from http www grad cmich edu Admission to the Ph D
program must be approved by the College of Graduate Studies and the Mathematics Graduate Committee
The student should have completed at least two semesters in the M A program prior to requesting to
transfer to the Ph D program The student must reapply and complete with new applicants for funding
for the following academic year A decision on which courses from the M A can be counted towards the
Ph D will be made by the student s advisor in consultation with the Graduate Coordinator The number
of credit hours that are transferred does not affect the total number of credit hours needed to earn a Ph D
RCA Training
Graduate students in a Master program must complete RCR training by the end of their third semester in
the program Graduate Students in a Ph D program must complete RCR training no later than one
semester after completing all the Ph D qualifying exams
The Role of the Research Advisor
A research advisor is a graduate faculty member selected by a graduate student based on their academic
area of interest You should select a research advisor as soon as you decide on your area of research
interest Your research advisor will guide you throughout the entire process of Plan B thesis dissertation
research and writing
For the Plan B Paper
Your research advisor advises you on and oversees the completion of the paper
For the Thesis Dissertation Paper
Your research advisor helps you to form a thesis dissertation committee
Your research advisor chairs the thesis dissertation committee
Your research advisor schedules the final oral examination in which you will defend your
thesis dissertation
Your research advisor advises you on and oversees the completion of the final revisions of the
thesis dissertation
The Role of the Thesis Dissertation Committee
In consultation with your supervisor you will form a thesis dissertation committee The approval of each
committee member on both the prospectus see forms section and the thesis dissertation is required
The committee may make suggestions for revising the prospectus
The committee may make suggestions for revising the thesis dissertation
The committee conducts the final oral examination
The committee determines whether the student passes the oral examination
The committee members should receive a copy of the thesis dissertation before the date of the final oral
examination Adequate time should be given to committee members for reading the thesis dissertation
Guidelines for Plan B Papers
This section describes the non thesis Plan B option for the Master of Arts M A degree Students must
complete two Plan B papers each one under the direction of a graduate faculty member For each Plan B
paper students must enroll in one credit of MTH 698 If a master s student passes a Ph D qualifying
exam it may count as a Plan B paper
After the student has selected his her Plan B supervisor and the student and supervisor have jointly
decided on the project the student must fill out a proposal for each Plan B paper and file it in the
department office
Each proposal must consist of
A statement indicating the aim of the project
A short description of the project
A bibliography containing at least two references relating to the topic
The signatures of the student and of the graduate faculty supervisor
Time Limit
The Plan B paper should be completed during the semester for which the student is enrolled in MTH 698
A presentation of the Plan B results should be given during the graduate student seminar
Guidelines
The purpose of the Plan B paper is to allow the student an opportunity to go beyond the normally
expected coursework by presenting significant evidence of scholarship and or creative activity in one of
the following areas
Actuarial Science
Applied Mathematics
Combinatorics
Computer Science
Geometry Topology
History of Mathematics
Mathematics Education
Number Theory
Probability
Statistics
Other elective topic
The topic will usually involve extensions or applications of material learned in class The topic does not
necessarily have to lead to new results and may be expository in nature but it should require a significant
amount of work on the part of the student Students are expected to spend at least three hours per week
working on the project during the semester they are enrolled in MTH 698
Appropriate topics will vary depending on the subject matter area but some possibilities include
A solution of a reasonably challenging but do able problem perhaps from a journal
A computer simulation design
An investigation of a topic in mathematics education
An analysis of a real world problem
An exposition of a theory or a collection of results
Guidelines for Master s Thesis
Thesis Committee
The thesis Plan A committee must consist of a total of three faculty members chaired by the student s
thesis supervisor It is the responsibility of the student to select the committee members in consultation
with the thesis supervisor All members of the committee must be graduate faculty at Central Michigan
University One member of the committee may be from outside the area of specialization or department
After the committee has been selected and the thesis topic has been chosen a Thesis Approval Prospectus
must be filed in the School of Graduate Studies before the work is formally initiated the form can be
downloaded from http www grad cmich edu At the same time the Mathematics Department also
requires a more detailed proposal to be submitted to the department office with the approval of the
committee members
The proposal shall consist of
A statement indicating the aim of the project
A short description of the project
A bibliography containing at least three references related to the topic
A timetable describing the different stages of the project including tentative dates of completion
Signatures of all the committee members approving the above
The length of the proposal should not exceed three pages A copy of the approved proposal must be
submitted to the department office
Time Limit
At the direction of the thesis supervisor the student may take as many as three semesters to complete the
thesis The candidate may enroll for all or part of Math 798 during any semester or summer session the
maximum number of credit hours in Math 798 is six The candidate will receive a grade credit or no
credit in Math 798 only on satisfactory completion of the entire six hours and its acceptance by the
committee A Z grade will be recorded in Math 798 until the final grade is assigned The supervisor
should fill out a Plan A completion form the form can be downloaded from http www grad cmich edu
and a copy will be filed with the department
Thesis Defense
There will be an oral examination covering the student s thesis topic The examination will be conducted
by the student s thesis committee in a colloquium format The examination must take place at least four
weeks prior to the student s graduation date
Ph D Qualifying Examination Policy
In the PhD qualifying examinations students are expected to demonstrate a broad knowledge of the topic
be able to integrate mathematical concepts and explain them at an appropriate level Qualifying
Examinations will be offered in the following areas based on the material in the courses listed
1 Algebra MTH 623 625

Each doctoral student must pass three examinations in three different areas from those listed above
Students planning to write a dissertation in pure or applied mathematics must pass examinations in
algebra analysis and one other area listed above
Students planning to write a dissertation in statistics must pass examinations in theoretical statistics
applied statistics and analysis
Students planning to write a dissertation in mathematics education must pass examinations in
mathematics education and two other areas listed above at least one of which must be algebra or
Students are strongly encouraged to take the examinations as soon as possible Full time students must
pass at least one examination before the end of their fifth semester fourth semester for students who
entered the Ph D program with a master s degree in mathematics or statistics and have exams in three
areas passed before the end of their eighth semester sixth semester for students who entered the Ph D
program with a master s degree in mathematics or statistics For example a student entering the program
in Fall 2013 must pass at least one exam before or during the examinations offered in Fall 2015 Fall
2014 for those entering with a master s and have passed all three exams before or during the
examinations offered in January 2017 January 2016 for those en tering with a master s Part time
students may request extra time from the department
Students who do not meet the exam deadlines must appeal to the graduate committee in order to remain in
the Ph D program The appeal must include a timeline for completion of all remaining exams A letter of
support from a faculty member is required for those students who do not meet the eight or six semester
deadline and is recommended for all appeals Students who exceed the timeline determined through the
appeal process are automatically eliminated from the Ph D Program
A maximum of three attempts in each area are allowed A third failure in one area eliminates a student
from the Ph D Program
Examinations will be offered twice a year at the beginning of the fall term in August September and at
the beginning of the spring term in January Each examination will be prepared and graded by at least
two graduate faculty members in the area of examination The format of the exam for each student will
be determined by the Graduate Committee in consultation with members of the examination committee
from that area
The student will be asked to sign up for one or more examinations by the middle of March for the
August September examinations and by the middle of October for the January examinations The
Graduate Committee will announce the examination committee within two weeks after the sign up
If a student is unable to take his her qualifying examination at the scheduled time due to serious illness or
emergency the student must contact the Graduate Coordinator prior to the examination The Graduate
Coordinator will decide based on the evidence whether to make alternate arrangements If the Graduate
Coordinator is not available the Department Chair or the Assistant Chair should be contacted
The examination committee will assign an overall grade of pass or fail for each student and will report to
the Graduate Committee its recommendations The Graduate Committee will inform the student in
writing the results of the Qualifying Examination and its decision
Students in the M A program may attempt any of the qualifying exams any number of times They may
only take the exams as scheduled for the doctoral program If a master s student passes a qualifying
exam it may count as a Plan B project and can carry forward as a passed exam if they choose to continue
in the doctoral program If a master s student does not pass a qualifying exam it will not be considered
as a failed attempt should they continue in the doctoral program In order to count the analysis
examination as a Plan B project a student must also earn elective credit in either MTH 633 or MTH 637
Guidelines for Ph D Dissertation
Upon successful completion of the qualifying examinations the student will select a dissertation
supervisor A dissertation supervisor must be a graduate faculty member in the Mathematics Department
The student will form a dissertation committee in consultation with the dissertation supervisor This
dissertation committee will be chaired by the supervisor and must include at least three other graduate
faculty members Two members of the dissertation committee must be from the Mathematics
Department A completed doctoral dissertation must be approved by the dissertation committee and by
the College of Graduate Studies
Students are required to register for 15 hours of MTH 898 Dissertation The dissertation must consist of
original work and can combine scholarly analytical creative and expository skills It could consist of
research on a topic in mathematics or statistics an expository or historical examination of a piece of
mathematics or research on a topic related to the teaching of collegiate mathematics Before starting the
dissertation work the project to be undertaken must be approved by the dissertation committee and the
Dean of the College of Graduate Studies If human subjects animals or recombinant DNA are involved
the student must receive approval from the appropriate committee
Verification of such approval is demonstrated by the completion of a Prospectus which can be
downloaded from http www grad cmich edu The department requires that a student whose
dissertation work doesn t involve human subjects animals or recombinant DNA submit his her
prospectus within one year after completing qualifying exams
Upon completion of coursework qualifying examinations the internship and the dissertation the
candidate for the Ph D degree must pass a final oral examination which is a dissertation defense in a
colloquium format The student s dissertation committee determines whether the student passes the
examination
