Master in applied mathematics, MA in math, and Ms in math?

  1. Feb 22, 2014 #1
    Hello guys!
    I really need some help here.
    I will get my BA in mathematics in two months. I want to get a master degree in math online. However, I'm not sure what should I get. Here are three programs I saw. Master in applied mathematics, MA in math, and Ms in math. I'm not quite sure what exact they are.

    Although my current GPA is 3.9, but I dislike proofs very much. I want to get a master with less proof courses involved. I like applications more.

    Is proof course in master in master in applied mathematics?

    I want to teach community college after get my master. At the same time, if I don't teach, I want to have some solid knowledge to get into industry.

    I'm not sure if I want to get phd yet, but if so, which one should I get master in?

    Does anyone know good online degree program?

    I appreciate your help

    An a half hour later you were planning on switching to engineering. I think you need to settle on what you want to do before figuring out how to do it.
