The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a combined 4+1 degree program leading to a Bachelor of Mathematics (BS) and Master of Applied Mathematics (MS) degree within a five-year plan of study. The program allows up to 9 credit hours of of graduate courses at the MTH/STT 6000/7000 level to be counted toward both the undergraduate (UG) and graduate (GR) degrees.
The Applied Mathematics Graduate Program provides students with a thorough introduction to application-oriented mathematics, preparing students for industrial employment or further graduate work. Students develop, with a graduate advisor, a plan of study that is tailored to their individual needs. A typical program of study includes courses in numerical analysis, computational mathematics, methods of applied mathematics, modeling, optimization, discrete mathematics, and probability and statistics. Coursework in an area of application, such as computer science, engineering, or physics is encouraged. The department makes provision for part-time degree candidates by offering courses in the late afternoon or evening. All master’s degree candidates are required to pass comprehensive written examinations or conduct a research project and give a final oral presentation.
To be accepted for the Combined Mathematics, BS & Mathematics, MS degree program, an undergraduate student must satisfy the conditions of university policy for combined degree programs, which include the following requirements:
- Mathematics major
- Have accumulated between 60 and 90 credit hours toward undergraduate degree
- Overall GPA in MTH/STT courses of at least 3.2
- A cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.2 or better
- The permission of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics to take graduate courses in the Department
- Complete the admission application
Once admitted to the program, the student must complete a program of study for the M.S. in Applied Mathematics.
Program Learning Objectives
Students in the Mathematics, BS & Applied Mathematics, MS combined degree program will
1. learn rigorous applied mathematics;
2. enhance modern computational skills to implement numerical algorithms for solving a wide range of problems arising in various applications in science and engineering.
3. prepare themselves for advanced careers in industry and government, to teach at the undergraduate level, or to further their education in a Ph.D. program.
Program Learning Outcomes
As a result of their learning experiences, students who complete the combined degree program in applied mathematics can:
1. solve problems in a broad range of significant applied mathematics.
2. formulate and analyze mathematical models for problems arising from applications
3. apply appropriate computational methods and numerical analysis for problems of scientific significance
4. acquire adequate problem-solving skills for multidisciplinary problems in significant STEM fields
