Applied and Computational Mathematics 4+1 Option
The Accelerated Masters Studies Option (4+1 Option) in Mathematics and Applied and Computational Mathematics (MATHACM) is designed to allow motivated students to earn both a B.S. or B.A. in Mathematics and an M.S. in Applied and Computational Mathematics with one additional year of coursework. This is achieved by a doublecounting allowance of up to 15 credits or five graduate level (500level or above) courses. One additional year of graduate work (15 credits) would be needed to complete the Master's program enabling students to earn two degrees in a total of five years.
Courses and Curriculum
MATHACM students may double count 15 credits (5 courses) of 500 level courses toward both the B.S./A.B. in Mathematics and M.S. in Applied and Computational Mathematics degrees. The courses double counted must be elected at the 500 level and include:
 Math 551 (Advanced Calculus), Math 562 (Math Modeling), and either Math 572 (Numerical Analysis) or Math 573 (Matrix Computations). This satisfies part of both the Analysis/Algebra option and the Applied Courses for the B.S. and all of the Core requirements for the M.S. degree.
 And either Option I, II or III:
Two additional electives that satisfy both the B.S. degree electives and the Modeling Specialization requirements of the M.S. degree. Choices include: Math 504, Math 520, Math 525, Math 554, Math 558, Math 523, Math 514, Math 516.
Two courses that satisfy the cognate option for the B.S. degree. Choices include: Stat 530, Stat 535, Stat 545, Stat 560, or select courses at the graduate level from CIS, ECE, ECON, IMSE, ME, PHYS and others.
One course from Option I and one course from the Option II.
A student may not receive credit for both a 400 and 500 level equivalent courses (for example, both Math 455 and Math 555).
4+1 Admission and Requirements
In order to be eligible for this program, a student must:
 Be a declared mathematics major with at least 60 completed credit hours
 Have completed the prerequisite courses for the math major: CIS/CCM 150 (or CIS 1501 or CCM 172), Math 228, Math 227, and Math 300 with grades of B+ or better in Math 227 and 228.
 Have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2
