An accelerated bachelor’s-to-master’s program is available to academically qualified students. Every full-time student with a grade point average of 3.000 or better in mathematics courses and overall at the end of the junior year is eligible to be admitted to this program. Students may begin taking graduate courses during their junior year as long as course prerequisites are met.
This program allows students to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in Mathematics in as little as five years by taking 126 credits in the first four years, including 12 graduate credits with grade of B or better: six of these graduate credits will count towards both the BA/BS and MS degrees, and the other six credits will fulfill requirements for the master's degree.
The flexibility of the curriculum in Mathematics allows the following options:
BA or BS in Mathematics / MS in Mathematics
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a bachelor’s-to-master’s program leading to a BA/BS degree in Mathematics and MS degree in Mathematics. All the requirements for both the BA/BS and MS degrees in Mathematics must be satisfied (see graduate catalog).
