The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at The University of New Mexico offers a Master in Science (M.S.) in Mathematics and a Doctor in Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Mathematics. Each of these degrees can be in the concentration of Pure Mathematics or Applied Mathematics.


The M.S. in Mathematics from The University of New Mexico is awarded under either Plan I: 26 hours and 6 hours thesis or Plan II: 32 hours. Under Plan II instead of writing a thesis, students must pass the M.S./Ph.D. Qualifying Exam at master’s level. 

Key Features 

  • To enter the Ph.D. program, students must pass this same exam but at a higher level, hence the Ph.D. qualifying examination requirements are the same as those listed for M.S. Plan II.  
  • After passing the Qualifying Exam, the Ph.D. candidate must fulfill 18 more hours of course credits, pass the Doctoral Comprehensive Exam, fulfill a language requirement, accumulate at least 18 hours of dissertation credits, and finally submit and defend his/her dissertation.
