The Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics degree hones students' analytical and problem-solving skills while building their understanding of mathematical theories and applications. Qualified undergraduate students in the math program may be eligible to participate in the accelerated B.A.-to-PSM program, which enables them to take graduate courses that apply to both their bachelor's degree in Mathematics and (thereafter) a master's degree in Applied Math.
The Professional Science Master's (PSM) in Applied Mathematics is designed to help develop skills in big data analysis and mathematics for a variety of STEM-related occupations for business, government and commercial applications.

- MAT 195 can be substituted for MAT 272 if the student is completing a Computer Science minor.
- CSC 475 requires a pre-requisite of CSC 216 and is suggested if the student is completing a Computer Science minor.
- Students who enter the B.A. in Math to PSM in Applied Math must have completed at least 9 credits of calculus, Linear Algebra I and Statistics prior to beginning PSM courses.
* PSA 611, PSM 645 (or PSM elective), PSM 760 and one PSM elective will be applied toward undergraduate credits.
Undergraduate students in the accelerated program may register for no more than 6 graduate credits in any one term, and in terms when a graduate course is registered, the student may not register for more than 18 total credits.
