Attention All Undergraduate mathematics majors!

The Institute For Mathematical and Statistical Innovation will host the 3rd BRING MATH workshop will take place October 3-4, 2024.  The workshop will be hosted at Argonne National Laboratory and sponsored by IMSI.  Its purpose is to expose undergraduates to research in mathematics and statistics being done at Argonne and its connections with real world applications, and to educate them about  opportunities related to the mathematical sciences which are available to them, both during summers and longer term.  The workshop is also open to faculty who wish to accompany a group of students to the workshop.  Applications are due by June 28, 2024.  


The Thirteenth International Workshop on Coding and Cryptography (WCC, 2024)

June 17-21, 2024 in Perugia, Italy

Combined B.S./M.S. in Mathematics

This accelerated, five-year program leads to both a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Master of Science (M.S.) degree.

Degree Requirements

The combined degree program is 150 credits, 120 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 sequence.

Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in upper-division and graduate courses. Students interested in the combined B.S/M.S. should consult with the graduate advisor before taking upper-division mathematics coursework to ensure that their coursework will apply toward the combined degree. They 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 lower-division requirements (including the requirements of the Intellectual Foundations Program) and requirements for the college and major. Lower-division 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 Transfer Student Manual.

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.

6 graduate electives (at least 5 at 6000 level) 18
Total Graduate Credits:


  • Upper-division mathematics electives: These electives must be chosen from courses offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and numbered 3000 or higher. The following courses may not be used as upper-division mathematics electives: STA 3163, STA 3173, STA 3949, MAT 3949, MAP 4945, or STA 4821.
  • Because of overlap in course content, Mathematics majors may receive credit for at most one course in each of the following pairs: (MAP 2302, MAP 3305), (MAP 4303, MAP 4306), (MAD3400, MAD 4401), (STA 4443, STA 4032).
  • Students may opt to take up to 6 master's thesis credits as elective courses, but the student must successfully complete a master's thesis for these credits to be counted toward the degree requirements.
  • The 12 credits from the graduate courses: MAA 5228, MAA 5229, MAS 5311, and MAS 5312 will be counted toward both degrees.

* As with all degree programs, the authoritative source for the degree requirements is the University Catalog that was in effect for the academic year in which the student entered the University. The information on this page does not supersede the Catalog.
