Electives
Electives sufficient to complete the 122 credit hours required for degree.
Mathematics as a Second Major
Requirements for a Second Major in Mathematics are the same as for the Mathematics Major (B.A. or B.S. degree).
Accelerated B.A. to B.S. to M.A.
Application and Admission
Qualified UNCG undergraduate students who are pursuing the B.A. or B.S. in Mathematics may apply for admission to the Accelerated Degree and the M.A. in Mathematics program. A cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.5 based on at least 30 hours earned at UNCG is required. Applicants must have completed at least 60 semester credits and may not apply for admission to the ADP before the first semester of the junior year. Applicants are also required to take the Graduate Record Examination. All applicants must submit the Request for Accelerated Degree Program to the Graduate School and must simultaneously apply for admission to the M.A. program in Mathematics.
Admitted students may apply up to 12 semester hours of graduate-level coursework toward completion of both the undergraduate and graduate degree, provided that they earn a grade of “B” (3.0) or better in the course and fulfill graduate-level requirements. The graduate courses the student will take within the Accelerated Degree Program in Mathematics must be approved by the Director of Graduate Study, must be specified on the Request for Accelerated Degree Program, and must be chosen from among the following courses:
Code | Title | Credit Hours |
---|---|---|
MAT 595 | Mathematical Analysis | 3 |
MAT 596 | Mathematical Analysis | 3 |
STA 551 | Introduction to Probability | 3 |
STA 552 | Introduction to Mathematical Statistics | 3 |
STA 661 | Advanced Statistics in the Behavioral and Biological Sciences I | 3 |
STA 662 | Advanced Statistics in the Behavioral and Biological Sciences II | 3 |
Degree Program Requirements
Please consult with an advisor to determine how the courses taken at the graduate level will meet requirements in the bachelor’s degree program. All degree requirements for the M.A. in Mathematics will remain the same.
