Goal 5: Graduates will communicate and work effectively and with integrity in individual and group settings.

Graduate Program Student Learning Outcomes

Goal 1: Students will demonstrate an understanding of the common body of knowledge in mathematics by reading, analyzing, and writing mathematical proofs.

Goal 2: Students will demonstrate the ability to apply analytical and theoretical skills to model and solve problems in their emphasis.

Goal 3: Students will be able to perform high-level reasoning.

Goal 4: Students will be able to critically evaluate work in their discipline.

Goal 5: Students will be able to effectively communicate technical ideas by using written and oral skills.

These SLOs are assessed on a 5-year cycle in courses spanning the different emphases:  MAT 5110 (Core), MAT 5170 (Pure mathematics), MAT 5080 (Applied mathematics), MAE 5600 (Mathematics Education), and STA 5320 (Statistics).
