The Mathematics discipline at Morris serves students who major or minor in mathematics, seek secondary mathematics teaching licensure, major or minor in programs that require a mathematical background, or those that want to expand their knowledge of mathematics as a part of the general education requirement. The curriculum is designed to help students develop expertise in mathematical techniques and methods, sharpen the students' mathematical and abstract reasoning intuition, and to encourage and stimulate the type of independent thinking required for research beyond the confines of the textbook. These capabilities are flexible and can help students succeed in any field, or continue on to advanced graduate study.
The Mathematics major at Morris starts with a solid grounding in mathematical principles. These foundations create a framework for whatever direction the student chooses as a focus. Students can then branch out and explore areas of mathematics that match their interest or that apply to their desired field. The curriculum also emphasizes the role mathematics plays in the development of civilization and in our society.
For teaching licensure in Mathematics, students complete a Mathematics major with Geometry, Discrete Mathematics and the History of Mathematics as part of the curriculum. In addition, students fulfill the professional education program, which will include student teaching.
Because of the wide scope of the specialized knowledge and research of the faculty, the Mathematics discipline offers a diverse range of advanced courses. Pure mathematics courses include Abstract Algebra, Combinatorics, Differential Geometry, Number Theory, Real and Complex Analysis, and Topology. In applied mathematics Partial Differential Equations, Mathematical Modeling, Optimization and Operations Research, Applications of Graph Theory, and Applied Numerical Analysis are also offered on a regular basis.
The mission of the discipline is to advance knowledge of mathematics by teaching mathematics and its processes, by research in mathematics and mathematical pedagogy, and by dissemination of this knowledge to students and the community we serve.
Historically, the study of mathematics has been central to a liberal arts education. The mathematics curriculum serves as an integral part of students' active pursuit of a liberal arts education. The mathematics program serves students who major or minor in mathematics, seek secondary mathematics teaching licensure, major or minor in programs that require a mathematical background, or wish to fulfill components of a general education.
The mathematics curriculum is designed to help students develop competence in mathematical techniques and methods; to sharpen students' mathematical intuition and abstract reasoning, as well as their reasoning from numerical data; to encourage and stimulate the type of independent thinking required for research beyond the confines of the textbook; and to provide students with the basic knowledge and skills to make mathematical contributions to modern society. The program seeks to enable students to see and communicate how the development of mathematics has been part of the development of several civilizations and is intimately interwoven with the cultural and scientific development of these societies. The curriculum prepares students to enter graduate school, pursue careers in applied mathematics, or teach mathematics.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

"The Academic Excellence Scholarship can provide up to a 50 % reduction in tuition per semester. These scholarships will be renewed if the student maintains superior academic performance during each semester of their 3-year Bachelor programme. The scholarship will be directly applied to the student’s tuition fees."
Scholarships for students who are already attending the University of Reading.
The University of Amsterdam aims to attract the world’s brightest students to its international classrooms. Outstanding students from outside the European Economic Area can apply for an Amsterdam Merit Scholarship.
