Basically, 300-level mathematically or computer programming-oriented courses in other majors can be counted as two of the AMS elective courses. Even if the non-AMS courses that student wants to take have the prerequisite of AMS courses, student must get the confirmation from the AMS coordinator whether the course can be counted as one of the non-AMS elective courses or not.
A5-1. AMS 475 is the Undergraduate Teaching Practicum course to assist the faculty in teaching by conducting recitation or laboratory sections that supplement a lecture course. If this is the first time enrolling in the Teaching Practicum course, students should enroll in AMS 475, and if it is the second time, students should enroll in AMS 476.
As per the Undergraduate Bulletin, no more than 6 credits earned through teaching practicum course may apply toward the bachelor's degree, including the other departments' 475/476 courses.
A5-3. AMS coordinator will request permission for the students who have been selected as TAs to the SBU AMS Department. Once the permission is given to the students, the students will get a message from their SOLAR account that they have received permission to enroll in AMS 475 or AMS 476. Then, students will be able to enroll in AMS 475 or AMS 476 through their SOLAR account.
A7. The requirement for visiting Stony Brook University is to complete AMS 261, AMS 301, AMS 310, and WRT 101 in SUNY Korea Songdo Campus. Students can only visit Stony Brook University in Fall semester and they are required to stay at Stony Brook University for one academic year (Fall-Spring).
A9-1. The accelerated Bachelor of Science-Master of Science allows a student to earn the BS and MS degrees in five years. Only 114 undergraduate credits are required along with 30 graduate credits. In the second half of the senior year, a BS-MS student begins his/her graduate studies. Further, in the first half of the senior year, a BS-MS student may take up to two graduate courses (that will count towards the MS degree), and while a graduate student, he/she may take additional needed undergraduate courses. The advantage of the accelerated program is that the MS degree can be earned in less time since the Applied Mathematics and Statistics MS degree requires three to four semesters of study after completion of a bachelor's degree.
You may find the detailed information on SBU AMS website:
Students may apply at the end of their junior year for admission to the Accelerated BS/MS Program. You can download the BSMS program application form from [Academics] -> [ Forms].
The requirements for applying to the Accelerate BS/MS Program are as below:
1) An overall GPA of 3.3
2) Major GPA of 3.5 higher, and have completed at least 3 upper division courses in addition to AMS 301 and AMS 310
3) Highly recommended courses
- AMS 311 for the Statistics and Operations Research tracks
- AMS 361 for the Computational Applied Math track
- AMS 333 for the Computational Biology track
5) Statement of purpose
6) Two letters of recommendation
*Note: The deadline for application is June 1st for fall admission and December 30th for spring admission. The application should be submitted to the AMS graduate secretary, Christine Rota via Christine.firstname.lastname@example.org.
A1. Students can get academic advice from the AMS coordinator (YounJu Baek, B519), AMS Undergraduate Program Director (Tan Cao, B524), and the AMS Chair (Myoungshic Jhun, B519), and their academic advisors.
