Major, Accelerated Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degree

NOTE: At the completion of the 140-hour program, and not before, the student will earn both a BS and an MS degree in Mathematics.

A graduate with a combined Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science degree in Mathematics will use the knowledge and skills obtained in the program to:

  • Communicate mathematical ideas clearly and coherently verbally and in writing to audiences of varying mathematical sophistication.
  • Apply content knowledge and appropriate technology to solve complex theoretical and applied mathematical problems.
  • Construct clear and concise mathematical proofs and other logical arguments.
  • Read and solve problems independently with an appropriate level of mathematical maturity.

UCM students having completed at least 9 hours of mathematics courses above the 1000 level with a major GPA of at least 3.00 may consult with their department faculty advisor and complete a departmental application to declare the accelerated BS/MS major in mathematics. Prior to beginning the graduate portion of the program, students in the accelerated program will need to apply to the UCM Graduate School for formal admittance to the Accelerated BS/MS program. Before completion of the program, a student must either pass a department comprehensive examination or write and successfully defend a thesis.
