Please refer to the Mathematics graduate program section for information including departmental contact information, list of graduate faculty members, program description, and course descriptions.

Requirements for Enrollment

Admission into the integrated program in Mathematics requires a minimum of a cumulative GPA and a major GPA of 3.25. Students must complete 60 s.h. of college coursework with at least 21 s.h. of mathematics to include MATH 231, 280, 311, 341 with grades no less than B, before applying for admission to the integrated program.

Integrated Degree Program Description

Up to nine semester hours of the following bridge courses may count in both the undergraduate degree (Option A or Option C only) and Master’s degree in Mathematics: MATH 421B, MATH 424B, MATH 435B, MATH 481B, MATH 483B, MATH 551B, MATH 552B, STAT 471B, STAT 478B, STAT 553B. If taken after the undergraduate degree has been completed, those courses must not be taken with the “B” designation.
