# New Online Master's in Math!

The University of North Alabama's Online Master of Science in Mathematics degree program is a fully online, innovative approach to graduate level mathematics. All students take a core of five 3-credit courses (including courses in algebra and analysis). In addition, students can choose from concentration / elective courses in pure mathematics, mathematics teaching, or various STEM concentrations.

Mathematics Faculty at UNA have expertise in the fields of Algebra, Group Theory, Graph Theory, Functional Analysis, Topology, Applied Mathematics, and Mathematics education.

M.A. Ed. - If you’re already getting a Master in Education with a math emphasis, we still have courses for you.

- Secondary Education classes have been updated and will be offered in an upcoming semester.
- Several of the new MS in Mathematics classes would be a good option this fall.
- We also have new independent study courses that could be used as well to focus on topics you are might be interested in.

Great Option for Math Majors Working in Industry or Education Who Desire a Stronger Background in Math and Related Concepts!
