The mathematics graduate program at WPUNJ offers courses of study leading to a Master of Science degree in Applied Mathematics. It is designed to properly prepare students with a strong background and interest in mathematics for careers in fields such as scientific research and development, data analytics, operations research, and financial analysis. It will also better prepare students who wish to go on to further study at the doctoral level.
Students in the program are expected to complete 18 credits of common courses, and then complete 9 credits from elective courses in one of the two tracks: applied statistics or discrete mathematics. Students in both tracks are required to take a 1 credit graduate seminar and then conduct either a 2 credit graduate research project or internship, or a 5 credit thesis as part of their study.

William Paterson University maintains a campus culture that welcomes diversity of personal circumstances and experiences, and prepares students to become effective citizens in an increasingly diverse and interdependent pluralistic society. The mathematics department has a diverse faculty that reflects the true demographics of the university community and we welcome applications to our graduate program from all students, particularly from groups that are underrepresented in the STEM fields. We are committed to providing an inclusive and supportive learning environment to all our students to succeed in their studies and go into advanced professional careers or pursue further study at a doctoral level.
