# Graduate Certificate Program in Mathematics

The UCF Math graduate certificate program has been offered since Fall 2009. It is mainly designed to prepare students to teach college-level mathematics in colleges or high schools.

Students in the graduate certificate program must complete 18 credit hours of graduate-level mathematics. 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.
