20202021 Undergraduate Catalog
Accelerated Bachelor/Master of Arts in Mathematics


Program Coordinator: Jungmin Choi (232 Austin Building; 2523285348; choiju@ecu.edu)
The accelerated bachelor/master of arts in mathematics program is initiated while undergraduates are completing the BA or BS degree in mathematics and is intended for outstanding mathematics undergraduates. For this program, graduate student course work will begin in the students’ fourth year of undergraduate study and be completed with one academic year of study beyond the bachelor’s degree. It is anticipated that a full year of study beyond completion of undergraduate mathematics requirements will be required to complete this program. Mathematics students may apply to the program after completion of a minimum of 75 eligible undergraduate credit hours, and can begin taking graduate courses after completion of a minimum of 90 eligible undergraduate credit hours (120 credit hours are required for the bachelor’s degree in mathematics). Up to 12 credit hours of graduate courses may be counted towards completion of both the undergraduate degree and master’s degree. The minimum GPA at the time of admission and entry to the program is 3.5 in mathematics courses and 3.0 overall. Students are formally admitted to the master’s degree after all requirements for the undergraduate degree are completed.
Students accepted into the accelerated program must earn a grade of B or above in all graduate coursework to continue in the accelerated program. Students who earn a C in any graduate course will still be able to count the course toward the BS or BA degree, but will not be eligible to take additional courses in the accelerated bachelor’s/master’s program Students will be able to reapply to the MA program.
Undergraduate students accepted into the accelerated program may count up to 12 s.h. in any combination from the following two sets of courses:
 MATH 5031  Applied Statistical Analysis (for MATH 4031 )
