General information on the CEMS Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) can be found here. Please note that admission to AMP is available only to UVM undergraduate students. Specific information regarding the AMP in Mathematics is below. The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also offers an AMP in Statistics, information about which can be found here.
The AMP in Mathematics is designed so that UVM students with a strong ability and motivation can complete a Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, science, or engineering, as well as a Master’s degree in mathematics, within five years.
The first four years consist of an undergraduate program that includes the core requirements for a minor in mathematics together with other courses that lay a solid mathematical foundation; this portion culminates in a Bachelor’s degree. During the fifth year, students take courses that complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree in mathematics.
The AMP is specifically designed to integrate the undergraduate and graduate portions so that students in it receive both the breadth and depth they would achieve had they completed two separate degree programs. A student must declare their intent to enter the AMP in writing to the Director of the Mathematics Graduate Program before the end of the sophomore year and before taking Math 241. A formal application is made in the Spring of the student's Junior year. It is recommended that the student apply by April to ensure that the application is processed in time.
The student carries out the usual procedure for admission to the MS program in Mathematical Sciences, including letters of recommendation. The student's admissions essay must specifically address why the student wishes to enter the AMP.
In addition to the above, students must 1) complete the Mathematics core with an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher, 2) complete Math 241 and 242 with grades of B+ or higher in each, and 3) complete at least two additional 200 level mathematics or statistics courses with grades of B+ or higher in each.
In planning your schedule to meet the requirements of the AMP, you may wish to consult the Course Schedule Planner to find out which semesters/years MATH courses usually run.
