online mathematics master's degree in US

does anyone here know if there is an online master's degree in mathematics, or computational mathematics offered by any reputable US university? (sharkfish?)  A cursory examination suggests "no."  (was just browsing open U's course offerings, am now jealous of UK/Europeans)

No, not unless you also want a Master's degree in education.  There are two places that offer a master's in education with a mathematics focus that I know of.  One is Montana

The other one I think was in Texas but I forget which.  I'm looking it up now...

Yeah.  Australia has a great online university system that offers just about everything.

The US is backward in regard to distance education.

Florida.  I can't find the TExas one.  Anyway, the Texas program was expensive, as I recall, and you can get a master's in math but with a statistics emphasis.

Then enroll in a UK or Australian program. It is called distance learning for a reason.

LOL.

STFU.  Damn. Duh.  I would enroll in an Australian course, but their certification is a question.  If you haven't gone to a U.S. regionally certified school, your degree may count for shit in some circles.

And if it is certified, the Australian dollar is doing so much better than ours...

The Open U only accepts students from the UK and Eurpoe, otherwise I would have done what Stephen suggests.

"This course is available for study in the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland and the following European OU study areas:

Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland."

Actually, the Open U does accept students from the USA, but not for the mathematics program.

I wonder why.

How much is tuition to Open U?

I cannot find exact details on the site, but I'm guessing the examinations for the course are in-person at a local testing center.

The tuition for each course in the Math MSc program is 395 pounds.

Thanks Sharkfish. I'll probably just apply to some local schools. My job is reasonably flexible, timewise.
