Mathematics (B.S.) (Combined B.S./M.S. Mathematics)

A Combined Degree program enables undergraduate students to enroll in graduate courses in their senior year, which can be counted towards the completion of both their Bachelor's and Master's degree requirements.  The ability to take these "swing courses" allows students to earn both their Bachelor's and Master's degrees in a shortened period of time, typically within five years of intensive study.  Undergraduate students interested in this option can find more information regarding program requirements on the University's Combined Programs website.

Program Requirements

Students in this combined degree program must complete the requirements for:

Mathematics (B.S.)

Mathematics (M.S.)

Graduate Swing Courses

A combined degree program allows students to complete 6-12 graduate credits ("graduate swing courses") while enrolled as an undergraduate. These courses count for both their bachelor and master’s degrees.  Graduate swing courses will count toward undergraduate free electives, unless noted otherwise.

The Graduate Swing Courses for this program:

MATH 521Real Variables I3
MATH 535Linear Algebra I3
Complete two graduate electives. See the graduate program page for the course list.6
