The program offers several areas of concentration, such as applied statistics, applied mathematics, operations research, and biostatistics.

For acceptance into the 4 + 1 program, students must have at least junior standing and must have completed MAT 153, MAT 281, and MAT 282, or their equivalents, with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.75.
