Mathematics, BS with grad track option leading to Mathematics, MS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Science

Admission requirements

This grad track option is an accelerated program for undergraduate students seeking a BS/MS. Qualified students may take a maximum of 12 graduate credit hours while completing the BS. These credits will be counted towards both the BS and the MS.

The student will apply for the grad track option during their junior year. The following criteria must be met:

  1. At least 75 credit hours must have been completed, with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.
  2. MATH 3510 , MATH 3610 , and MATH 4500  must have been completed prior to admission to the grad track program, all with a grade of A.
  3. Applicants must be projected to complete the BS during the academic year following the academic year in which they apply.

After the BS is earned, the graduate credits will be transferred to the MS program.

Program requirements

The MS grad track program is designed to encourage talented undergraduates to consider remaining at UNT for an advanced degree, with a view to attracting them to the PhD program.

After the application is approved and at least 90 credit hours have been completed, the student may begin enrolling in graduate courses approved for the grad track. 

Any four 5000-level math graduate courses other than Math 5000 or Math 5600 may appear on the undergraduate degree plan.

In order for the courses to be applicable to the MS degree, the minimum grade requirements for graduate program course work must be met.


  • Students should discuss with the graduate advisor the possibility of taking preparatory courses before taking core courses:
    • Math 5110-5120 is preparatory for Math 5310-5320
    • Math 5400 is preparatory for Math 5410-5420
    • Math 5500 is preparatory for Math 5520-5530
  • Students should verify with the departmental undergraduate advisors that all requirements for the BSMTH are met. Graduate courses appearing on the undergraduate degree plan apply to the different BSMTH concentrations as follows:
    • Analysis: 5110-5120, 5310-5320, 5400, 5410-5420
    • Algebra: 5500, 5520-5530
    • Geometry/Topology: 5010-5020, 5610-5620
    • Probability/Statistics: 5810-5820
    • For other graduate courses, consult with the graduate advisor.


All remaining courses for Mathematics, BS must be completed.

Preparing for full-time graduate study

To eventually earn the MS in mathematics:

  1. The student will apply to Toulouse Graduate School within the first semester of the senior year.  The online application and all required documents for admission to the MS program in Mathematics must be submitted.
  2. The student must enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing the BS.  In the following 4 semesters (including summer terms), the remaining 24 hours required for the MS degree must be completed.

    If the student does not enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing the BS, graduate hours earned under this program will not count toward any future UNT MS degree.
  3. Students are encouraged to discuss eventual M.S. degree requirements with the departmental graduate advisor.
