Now Available Online: Mathematics Graduate Certificate

NC State’s College of Sciences’ is now offering a Graduate Certificate in Mathematics online.

The program is primarily aimed at current teachers and instructors at the high school or community college levels. It provides students with graduate-level academic credentials in Pure or Applied Mathematics and is designed to satisfy broad needs in professional development and can be tailored to individual needs.

Online courses for this program use standard software and collaboration tools. Some courses may, in addition, use more specialized computational software such as MATLAB, Maple or R.


The program requires students to complete four graduate-level courses in mathematics (one can be at the advanced undergraduate level, i.e., 400 level). Students are expected to earn at least a C- in all courses and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 for graduation.


The program will allow students to increase their skills and knowledge in mathematics either for future job opportunities or in preparation for graduate studies.

Through the completion of the online mathematics graduate certificate program, instructors will expose students to their knowledge of the field and thus become a better teacher. Students will also learn about new material that can be used in their courses and acquire a renewed understanding and appreciation for the role played by mathematics in the sciences and technology through concrete examples.
