Accelerated Master's Program

9 credit hours of approved mathematics courses to be used for both BS and MS degrees provided they are (i) taken at the 5000 level, and (ii) completed with a grade of B or above.

Complete BS Degree requirements including the following mathematics course requirements (see course requirements) with an overall GPA of 3.0 and GPA of 3.25 in mathematics courses.

A student dropping out of the BS-MS program before the mid-program review, or deemed ineligible at the mid-program review, will be able to complete the BS degree, subject to the normal rules of that program. 

The following are course requirements for the Accelerated Master's Program:

  • MATH 1350 - Calculus I (4 credit hours)
  • MATH 1360 - Calculus II (4 credit hours)
  • MATH 2350 - Calculus III (4 credit hours)
  • MATH 2150 - Discrete Math (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 2650 - Introduction to Computational Math (1 credit hour)
  • MATH 3110 - Theory of Numbers (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 3130 - Introduction to Linear Algebra (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 3400 - Introduction to Differential Equations ( 3 credit hours)
  • MATH 3410 - Introduction to Analysis (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 3810 - Introduction to Probability and Statistics (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 4040 - Senior Math Seminar (1 credit hour)
  • MATH 4140 - Modern Algebra I (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 4310 - Modern Analysis I (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 5xxx - Dual Credit Course (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 5xxx - Dual Credit Course (3 credit hours)
  • MATH 5xxx - Dual Credit Course (3 credit hours)

After completing the BS degree requirements including the above mathematics courses, and after a mid-program review, an eligible (see eligibility above) student will be recommended to the Graduate School for admission to the MS in Applied Mathematics program. The student will only need 21 credit hours of graduate courses to complete the MS degree instead of (normal) 30 credit hours. However, all other requirements for the MS in Applied Mathematics degree will apply.

The mathematics course requirements for the BS degree consist of the core courses at the 1000-3000 level listed above +MATH 4040+5 other 4000-level mathematics courses. The MS (Applied Mathematics) degree requires 30 credit hours at 5000-level or above. The combined BS-MS degree will fulfill all requirements for the BS and MS degrees via the overlapping dual credit mechanism.
