In addition to its major programs, the department supports an undergraduate Minor program as well as two approved Subject Matter Programs for the Single Subject Mathematics waiver and Foundational Level Mathematics Waiver. Supplementing the academic programs are seminars, colloquia, speakers, and other events.
The Department of Mathematics at the California State University, Los Angeles consists of 13 tenure-track/tenured faculty working full-time, 4 FERP (Faculty Early Retirement Program) faculty working 1/2 time, about 60 adjunct faculty, and graduate teaching associates. The faculty is professionally active having published over thirty books as well as a large number of research papers.
Students in the master's program include returning teachers, others from industry, government, as well as those coming directly from undergraduate programs in mathematics or other fields. Graduate teaching associate positions are available and supply valuable teaching experience as well as financial support.
Students entering as undergraduate majors complete programs preparing them for high school teaching, for graduate study, or for positions in government or industry.
