Diploma in Mathematics
The Diploma in Mathematics is a two-year, 62 credit hours study program designed to equip its holders with adequate knowledge, skills, and competencies in mathematics and statistical analysis. The program focuses on pairing theoretical explanations with practical work in the form of problem solving and projects. In addition, the program follows a modern liberal arts approach by exposing the students to a sound knowledge of general sciences, the arts, study of the Omani culture, mastery of general computing skills, and efficient usage of Arabic and English languages.
Although the Diploma holders may exit the university education with this degree, they will also have opportunities to continue their education to complete Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Mathematics if they satisfy the requirements for admission to the BS in Mathematics programs, then all the credits that are successfully completed in the Diploma program are transferable to the BS programs.
To graduate with the Diploma in Mathematics, students must satisfactorily complete 60 credit hours of course work from the courses that are described in the Program of Study with an overall minimum average of 65 percent.
