Master of Science (MS)
Mathematics is often called the oldest science, but it might also be called the most modern of sciences. In many aspects it is so modern that practical uses have not been found. While “pure" mathematicians develop new ideas and concepts with small attention to possibilities of practical applications, the applied scientist regularly discovers uses which may never have been considered by the originator.
