Applied Mathematics, Accelerated BS/MS


This is an accelerated BS/MS program.  By completing the program successfully, a student will earn the baccalaureate degree after four years and the master's degree after five years. During the third year of the baccalaureate degree, a student will formally apply to the program through the Graduate School.  Upon acceptance, the student will be cleared to complete the remaining electives of the baccalaureate degree and 30 credits of graduate coursework for the master’s degree in the last two years. Up to nine credits of approved graduate coursework will count toward both the baccalaureate and the master's degrees.


Graduate work will include the following courses:

MATH:621Real Analysis3
MATH:627Advanced Numerical Analysis I3
MATH:633Methods of Applied Mathematics I3
MATH:692Seminar in Mathematics3
MATH:699Master's Thesis (Non-thesis option is not available)3
Select at least one of the following:3
MATH:625Analytic Function Theory
MATH:628Advanced Numerical Analysis II
MATH:632Advanced Partial Differential Equations
Select at least two of the following:6
MATH:634Methods of Applied Mathematics II
MATH:730Advanced Numerical Solution of Partial Differential Equations
Select six elective credits6
Total Hours30

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 they will have the option to complete the regular bachelor’s degree program instead of the five-year accelerated plan.
