Qualifications and Requirements for the BS/MS Program
Integrated B.S./M.S. Programs in Mathematics and/or Applied Mathematics
         The integrated B.S./M.S. Program is intended for highly motivated candidates for the B.S in Mathematics and
         Applied Mathematics who wish to pursue an advanced degree. Application to the B.S./M.S. program must be made
         after completion of 75 semester hours of course work and prior to attaining senior status (completion of 90
         semester hours). Generally, this means that a student will submit the application during his/her sixth semester
         of undergraduate course enrollment and will have no fewer than two semesters of remaining B.S. requirements
         to complete. Applicants should consult the Dean of Undergraduate Studies.
         A student admitted to the program may, in the senior year, take up to nine hours of graduate courses (400 level
         and above) that will count towards both B.S. and M.S. requirements. The courses to be doubled-counted must be
         specified at the time of application. Any undergraduate course work that is to be applied to the M.S. must be
         beyond that used to satisfy B.S. degree requirements and must conform to University, School, and Department rules.
         Students may petition to transfer graduate course work taken prior to application to the B.S./M.S. Program subject to
         the rules of the Graduate School.
         Students for whom the master’s project or thesis is a continuation and development of the senior project should
         register for MATH 651 Thesis (or the appropriate project course) during the senior year and are expected to complete
         all other courses for the B.S. before enrolling in further M.S. course work and thesis (continuing the senior project).
         Students for whom the master’s thesis or project is distinct from the senior project will be expected to complete the
         B.S. degree before taking further graduate courses for the master’s degree.
Integrated B.S./M.S. in Applied Mathematics and Another Discipline
         There is the possibility of an integrated five-year study plan leading to a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and an M.S. in
         the area of application. In order to complete the requirements for the B.S./M.S. in five years, students must choose an
         area outside Mathematics that integrates well with Mathematics, such as Computing and Information Science,
         Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Systems Engineering, Control Theory, Biology, or Cognitive Science. The general
         academic requirements for Integrated B.S./M.S. programs must be followed. (Since the graduate courses required
         for the M.S. degree are determined by the respective department, each student in the dual-degree program should
         have a secondary advisor in that department, starting no later than the junior year, and consult with this advisor
         concerning requirements for the M.S. degree.)
