Mathematics - Online and Distance Education



About Us

The Department of Mathematics at NC State University offers an online version of the Graduate Certificate in Mathematics. An online Master of Mathematics Degree is under development.

These online programs feature the same outstanding courses offered to on-campus students. Online students have access to the same weekly lectures and complete the same assignments as on campus students. Online tools are used to facilitate interaction between instructors and students and to develop a vibrant community of online learners.

NC State offers specialized certificates that prove you’ve done in-depth work in a certain area – which gives you an edge when it comes to landing promotions or new jobs. The only requirements? You must be an off-campus student who already has a bachelor’s degree.

Upon program completion, you’ll have the same learning outcome as students who spent hours in a classroom: a master’s degree or certificate that can catapult your career to the next level.

Who Can Apply?

Students come from a wide range of backgrounds. Our program is designed to provide an excellent education to engineers, educators, and people who work in other industries.
