Combined Bachelors-Masters Degree in Applied Mathematics
The Department of Mathematical and Computer Sciences has also introduced a combined Bachelor’s/Master’s degree program in Applied Mathematics. The graduate requirements for this program are identical to those for the current Master’s Degree program in Applied Mathematics.
Undergraduates participating in the program must meet additional undergraduate requirements. Suitably qualified students can acquire the necessary number of graduate credits by taking:
(i) the maximum allowed of four 4000/6000-courses at the 6000-level;
(ii) six 7000-courses, of which three (the maximum allowed) to be taken in the senior year (as 5000-courses) and double-counted; one of the three 7000-courses taken in the graduate year may be replaced by the Group Report.
Undergraduates in any of the undergraduate mathematics degree programs at the University of Tulsa are eligible for admission to the Combined Degree program. However, the requirements of the program are more consistent with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics.
Specifically, undergraduate students in the Combined Degree program are required to take Math 4503 (Introduction to Numerical Methods), Stat 4813 (Statistical Methods for Scientists and Engineers) or Stat 5423 (Probability), and Math 4143 (Introduction to Partial Differential Equations). Almost any 4000-level course not needed for the undergraduate degree may be taken for graduate credit through enrollment in the appropriate 6000-level course.
However, the undergraduate modeling course Math 4213 should not be taken. Instead, students in the Combined Degree program should enroll in the graduate modeling course Math 7013 (Advanced Mathematical Modeling) or its 5000-level version. It is recommended that Math 4123 (Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory) should be taken as early as possible, preferably during the sophomore year.
Students interested in the Combined Degree program should seek enrollment advice from the Graduate Advisor for Applied Mathematics. Students who are admitted to the Combined Degree program will have the Graduate Advisor for Applied Mathematics assigned as their advisor for both the undergraduate and graduate portions of their Combined Degree curriculum.
