## Graduate Certificate Program in Mathematics

The UCF Math graduate certificate program has been offered since Fall 2009 with the financial math track and data modeling track added in Fall 2020. The general graduate certificate program is mainly designed to prepare students to teach college-level mathematics in colleges or high schools, the graduate certificate program on financial mathematics is designed for students to gain knowledge of mathematical finance and to pursue careers in financial services industry and regulatory agency, and the graduate certificate program on data modeling is for students to gain knowledge of mathematical modeling and analytics techniques for data extraction, and to prepare their career on data analyst and data architect. Brief description of the Certificate program can be found in th UCF Math Certificate Program Brochure.

Students in the graduate certificate program must complete 18 credit hours of graduate-level mathematics, while students with financial math and data modeling track must complete 12 credit hours of graduate-level courses. All required courses will be offered to accommodate distance learning by posting recorded lectures and taking exams/quizzes at local facility. However not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online.

The program may be completed online. UCF is not authorized to provide online courses or instruction to students in some states. Refer to State Restrictions for current information.

Most of required and elective courses in the program are proof-based. For the admission to the graduate certificate program, students should master the content of the following courses:

- MAC 2311, MAC 2312, MAC 2313: Calculus I, II, III
- MAP 2302: Ordinary Differential Equations
- MAS 3105: Matrix and Linear Algebra

It is highly recommended that students have taken the following courses:

Meeting minimum UCF admission criteria does not guarantee program admission. Additional information about the Certificate Program in Mathematical Sciences can be found at UCF Graduate Catalog, the College of Graduate Studies website, and the graduate program’s Admission website.
