The 5-year program combines two existing programs - the Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics  and the MS degree in Applied Statistics.

Admission Requirements

Students considering this program are strongly encouraged to speak to a major advisor in Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics as soon as possible. If possible immediately upon entering Syracuse University. Completing the program in 5 years requires careful planning.

To be eligible for admission to the program students must: 1. Be admitted to the major Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics according to the normal procedure for that major and 2. Successfully complete MAT 521 Introduction to Probability. After that the student must apply to the Director of the Applied Statistics program. The decision on whether to admit the student will be based mainly on how the well student has performed in the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics thus far.

Program Requirements

Students in this program will in 5 years complete all the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics found here: Mathematics, BA, as well as all of the requirements for a Master of Science Degree in Applied Statistics found here: Applied Statistics, MS.
