Combined B.S./M.S. in Mathematics
This accelerated, five-year program leads to both a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Master of Science (M.S.) degree.
Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in upper-division and graduate courses. Students interested in the combined B.S/M.S. should consult with the graduate advisor before taking upper division mathematics coursework to insure that their coursework will apply toward the combined degree. They must take the GRE and apply for admission to candidacy by the end of their junior year.
In addition, students seeking this degree should complete the following courses:

* The following courses may not be used as upper-division math electives:
STA 3163, STA 3949, STA 4032, and STA 4821
* Because of overlap in course content, Mathematics majors may receive credit for at most one course in each of the following pairs:
MAP 2302 or MAP 3305
MAP 4303 or MAP 4306
MAD 3400 or MAD 4401
* As with all degree programs, the authoritative source for the degree requirements is the University Catalog that was in effect for the academic year in which the student entered the University. The information on this page does not supersede the Catalog.
