This is an accelerated, fiveyear program where students complete the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mathematics and then continue with the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. The combined degree program is 150 credits: 120 credits for the undergraduate degree and 30 for the master's degree, with a maximum of 12 credits of graduate coursework used to satisfy both degrees. Once admitted into the program, students shall follow the suggested course sequences within a single track. The baccalaureate degree will be conferred before the master’s degree.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in upperdivision and graduate courses. Students interested in the combined B.S./M.S. should consult with the graduate advisor before taking upperdivision mathematics coursework to ensure that their coursework will apply toward the combined degree. Students must take the GRE and apply for admission to candidacy by the end of their junior year.
Prerequisite Coursework for Transfer Students
Students transferring to Florida Atlantic University must complete both lowerdivision requirements (including the requirements of the Intellectual Foundations Program) and requirements for the college and major. Lowerdivision requirements may be completed through the A.A. degree from any Florida public college, university or community college or through equivalent coursework at another regionally accredited institution. Before transferring and to ensure timely progress toward the baccalaureate degree, students must also complete the prerequisite courses for their major as outlined in the
Transition Guides
.
All courses not approved by the Florida Statewide Course Numbering System that will be used to satisfy requirements will be evaluated individually on the basis of content and will require a catalog course description and a copy of the syllabus for assessment.
B.S. Curriculum
Students must complete the requirements of the B.S. degree in Mathematics. Twelve graduate credits will count toward both B.S. and M.S. degree requirements. Students must select 12 credits from the graduate courses within a single track.
