Masters Theses

Early in the twentieth century, the college was offering masters degrees. From 1903 to 1948, 14 of 714 theses (catalogued in the library) were in mathematics. Of these 14, eleven were written by women. Notice also, that four of these women (Denis, Hood, Belschner, Hansman) taught mathematics at the college.

In 1966, the college dropped the masters degree program (the last masters was actually awarded in 1971), but chose to keep the Masters in Teaching program. This program allows practicing teachers to fulfill the appropriate course work during the summer session.
