  • General Information : California State University, Sacramento, located on the banks of the American River in a pleasant Sacramento location (see photographs above), offers a 2-year M. A. program with a traditional core of Real Analysis and Abstract Algebra courses, and other course choices selected from Topology, Complex Analysis, Applied Mathematics, and Statistics offerings. Additional graduate courses may be offered depending on demand and interests of students.

    The CSUS M.A. program, averaging about 20 fully classified graduate students, provides an environment with small classes and easy access to faculty. While a few of our M.A. graduates pursue a Ph.D. elsewhere, most view the M.A. as their culminating degree and take jobs in community college teaching, industry, or in state government positions. Many of our M.A. graduates remain in the area and are now faculty members at local community colleges.
