Applied Mathematics, Accelerated BS/MS
This is an accelerated five-year BS/MS program. After successfully completing this program, a student will receive a bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics as well as a master’s degree in applied mathematics. Under the supervision of a faculty advisor, a student in the program will finish the core course requirements and most of the electives for the bachelor’s degree in the first three years. During the third year of the baccalaureate degree a student will formally apply to the program through the Graduate School. Upon acceptance a student will be cleared to complete the remaining electives of the bachelor’s degree and 30 credits of graduate work for the master’s degree in the last two years. A student will be eligible for a graduate assistantship only in these last two years and must be registered for at least nine graduate credits in each of those semesters. In this program six of the required senior-level credits for the undergraduate program will be replaced by graduate-level credits. These six credits will be applied to the requirements of both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Further, students in the program may choose to replace nine credits of the open electives for the undergraduate program by graduate-level electives.
Graduate work will include the following courses:
|3450:627||Advanced Numerical Analysis I||3|
|3450:633||Methods of Applied Mathematics I||3|
|3450:692||Seminar in Mathematics||3|
|3450:699||Master's Thesis (Non-thesis option is not available)||3|
|Select at least one of the following:||3|
|Analytic Function Theory|
|Advanced Numerical Analysis II|
|Advanced Partial Differential Equations|
|Select at least two of the following:||6|
|Methods of Applied Mathematics II|
|Advanced Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations|
|Select six elective credits||6|
A student must maintain a 3.0 or better grade point average to stay in the program. If a student is not able to do this, then he or she will have the option to complete the regular bachelor’s degree program instead of the five-year accelerated plan.
