Mathematics & Statistics

This program is designed for superior students having a solid background in high school mathematics and the ability to handle a fast-paced, challenging program leading to B.A. *and* M.A. degrees in Mathematics in four to five years.

The program meets all the requirements for the B.A. degree in Mathematics, but also requires the student to take those graduate-level courses required for the M.A. degree in Mathematics.

For admission to the program, a student must:

- have completed at least 30 hours of college credit, including 8 hours of 3000-level or above mathematics courses;
- have at least a 3.0 GPA for all college courses; and
- have at least a 3.5 GPA for all mathematics courses taken at the 3000-level or above.

To apply for admission, send a letter to the Chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Dr. Skrzypek, stating your qualifications and desire to enter the program. An important benefit of this program is that a student is eligible to apply for a graduate teaching assistantship once he or she has completed the undergraduate Mathematics major courses.
