Mathematics BS(Applied Mathematics)/Applied Mathematical Science MAMS(non-thesis)

The purpose of the M.A.M.S. program is to provide mathematical training for students who wish to work in business, government, or industry. It is designed to produce applied mathematical scientists who can solve quantitative and qualitative problems arising in practical applications, and provides career and academic opportunities in areas such as computer aided industrial design, operations research, engineering or systems analysis.

Admission to Program

Students may apply to the Double Dawgs pathway after completing six MATH hours at the 3000- or higher level with a grade of B or higher (B- does not count). Application will require a transcript and recommendation letters from two Math faculty (at any institution). Admission is competitive and admission to the Double Dawgs pathway does not guarantee admission to the graduate program.


Graduate-level courses that may be used to satisfy undergraduate and graduate program requirements.

The Double Dawgs pathway will allow credit from the following 6000-level courses in MATH to satisfy both the 8 course requirement from the B.S. program and the 33 credit hour requirement from the M.A.M.S. program:

MATH 6000, MATH 6010, MATH 6050, MATH 6080, MATH 6100, MATH 6110, MATH 6120, MATH 6150, MATH 6200, MATH 6220, MATH 6250, MATH 6300, MATH 6400, MATH 6450, MATH 6500, MATH 6510, MATH 6600, MATH 6700, MATH 6720, MATH 6790.

In addition, we will accept MATH(CSCI) 6670, MATH(CSCI) 6690, and MATH(BINF) 6780 for both these requirements. The Topics in Mathematics course (MATH 6900) may be accepted for both requirements with permission of department. Students in the Double Dawgs pathway will be permitted to take the above courses at the 6000-level regardless of honors status.

The Double Dawgs pathway will allow simultaneous credit for the following 8000-level courses for the 8 course requirement for the B.S. program and both the 33 math hour requirement and 9 hours at 8000-level requirement for the M.A.M.S. program:

MATH 8000, MATH 8010, MATH 8020, MATH 8030, MATH 8040, MATH 8080, MATH 8100, MATH 8110, MATH 8130, MATH 8150, MATH 8160, MATH 8170, MATH 8190, MATH 8200, MATH 8210, MATH 8230, MATH 8250, MATH 8260, MATH 8300, MATH 8310, MATH 8315, MATH 8320, MATH 8330, MATH 8400, MATH 8410, MATH 8430, MATH 8440, MATH 8500, MATH 8510, MATH 8550, MATH 8600, MATH 8630, MATH 8710, MATH 8740, MATH 8750, MATH 8770

Students in the Double Dawgs pathway will be permitted to take the above (8000-level) courses regardless of honors status and before they have matriculated as graduate students. The M.A.M.S. program expects students to complete a technical report, enrolling in 3 hours of MATH 7100 for preparation of the technical report. This course will not satisfy the 8 course requirement for the B.S. program.

Additional requirements that are unique to this Double Dawgs program:

The Double Dawgs pathway will not impose any additional requirements on the students; however, the Area of Emphasis in Applied Mathematics is required.

Admission to Graduate Program

Students in the Double Dawgs pathway may apply to the graduate program for admission in any semester after they have completed 6 hours of 4000- or 6000-level coursework. Applications require a transcript and letters of recommendation from two math faculty who have taught the student in 4000- or 6000-level coursework. Applications will be considered each semester (and during summer) by the department. In order to matriculate into the graduate program, students must first receive their undergraduate degree.
