Data Science and Business Analytics (MS)

The Professional Science Master’s (PSM) program in Data Science and Business Analytics (DSBA) is an interdisciplinary program at the intersection of business, computer and information sciences, statistics, and operations research. The program leads to a Master of Science in Data Science and Business Analytics. It is a unique blend of business acumen, data understanding, exposure to a diverse set of advanced analytics methods, and hands-on experience designed to help students apply learned knowledge on representative business problems. DSBA graduates are well equipped for employment in a wide variety of data-intensive industries, such as financial services, energy, retail/supply chain, or healthcare, where the need for business analysts with quantitative, computational, and sophisticated analytical skills is growing at an explosive pace.

Optical Science and Engineering (MS)

The Master of Science in Optical Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary program involving primarily five science and engineering departments and two centers (Departments of Physics & Optical Science, Chemistry, Mathematics & Statistics, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering & Engineering Science; the Center for Optoelectronics & Optical Communications; and the Center for Precision Metrology). The Program educates scientists and engineers who will develop the next generation of optical technology.

Mathematics (MS)

Mathematics: Applied, General, Applied Statistics, and Mathematics Education concentrations.The Master of Science in Mathematics is organized into four concentrations: General Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics, and Mathematics Education. The Concentration in General Mathematics is a robust but flexible program that allows a student to develop a broad background in Mathematics ranging over a variety of courses chosen from both pure and applied areas, or to tailor a program toward a particular focus that may not be as closely covered by the department's other degree concentrations (e.g., one that is interdisciplinary in nature). The Concentration in Applied Mathematics develops analytical and computational skills focused toward applications of mathematics in the physical sciences as encountered in industry, government, and academia. The Concentration in Applied Statistics provides theoretical understanding of, and training in, statistical analysis and methods applicable to particular areas of business, industry, government, and academia. The Concentration in Mathematics Education is designed primarily for secondary school mathematics teachers interested in professional growth in mathematics teaching. Emphasis in this program is given to developing depth and breadth in mathematics teaching and learning, appropriate to the role of the secondary school teacher.

Quantitative Analyses (CERT)

The Graduate Certificate in Quantitative Analyses program will target experienced educators who hold a master’s degree in a related educational field. Individuals attracted to the new program will seek to deepen their statistical skills for improving education outcomes. Other students may pursue the certificate as a means of transitioning into a career in higher education or a research organization.

Secondary Education (MAT)

"Become the teacher you have always wanted to be and earn a master’s degree in the process. UNC Charlotte's Master of Arts in Teaching programs allow students to become a self-reflective master teacher, in addition to developing advanced competencies as a teacher-researcher and a teacher-leader. Concentrations available include Comprehensive Science, English, History/Social Studies, and Mathematics."

Mathematics (applied) (Ph.D.)

The Ph.D. degree program in Applied Mathematics is designed to enable students to master a significant body of mathematics, including a specialty in applied mathematics; relate this knowledge to a coherent area of science or engineering; and to carry on fundamental research in applied mathematics at a nationally competitive level. Recipients of this degree will, according to their abilities and choice of sub-specialty, be able to work effectively in a research and development environment involving mathematical or statistical analysis and modeling in business, government or industry; teach mathematics at the college or university level; or carry on fundamental research in their area of specialty.

Accountancy (MACC)

The Master of Accountancy (MACC) degree is designed to prepare students for careers in public accounting, industry, banking, and other organizations. In addition it prepares interested students for further study in doctoral programs or law school. The program provides graduates with the technical skills, competencies, knowledge, and judgment to succeed as an accounting professional.
