Our Master of Mathematical Sciences is an intensive degree designed for students with backgrounds in related study areas. You could help build business start-ups as a data scientist or enter the growing field of gaming design and performance analysis.
You might be an actuary, applying probability and statistics to insurance and banking.
There is an official minimum and maximum for transferable credits to the University of Illinois at Springfield.
You will notice as you review Admission Requirements or the UIS Admissions website that there is a minimum of 30 hours for students to be accepted into the University.
While UIS is a four-year institution and we have some onground math majors who are freshmen, the online degree program is meant for transfer students only.
It is anticipated that transferring students will have approximately two years of credits (60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours), and take another 60 hours here for the bachelor’s.Students who transfer in as seniors with the maximum 90 hours do not merely need to take the final 30 hours for the graduation requirement; they also need to ensure that they have fulfilled the requirements specific to their major.For math majors, this means they usually will need 42 hours: 32 core Math hours and 10 hours for the Engaged Citizenship (ECCE) requirement.The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students.The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice.General electives are usually not necessary for these students, unless Admissions has specifically informed them of a general education deficiency such as an English composition course or a lab science.For a list of the lower-division general education courses that Admissions will be looking for in your transcript, see the “Transfer” tab at our General Education webpage, or view the Illinois Articulation’s website.Degree must include at least 6 units of mathematical sciences at Level I and at least 6 units of mathematical sciences at Level II or equivalent.Bachelor Degree or equivalent with a minimum GPA of 5.0.So for the many other situations that students find themselves in, and for the pressing questions that you want answered before embarking on this path, we have put together the FAQ below.If you don’t find an answer here, be sure to contact the online program coordinator.
