Bachelor of Arts with Major in Liberal Arts and Sciences, with Concentration in Mathematical Sciences; or Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science with Major in Biological and Physical Sciences, with Concentration in Mathematics to Master of Science Degree with Major in Mathematics

This is an accelerated five-year program where students complete the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Mathematics in the Wilkes Honors College and then continue on with the Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Mathematics in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science.

The combined degree program is 150 credits: 120 credits for the undergraduate degree and 30 for the master's degree, with a maximum of 12 credits of graduate coursework used to satisfy both degrees. Once admitted into the program, students follow the suggested course sequences within a single track. The baccalaureate degree will be conferred before the master's degree.

Students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 in upper-division and graduate courses. Students interested in this program should consult with the undergraduate and graduate advisors before taking upper-division mathematics coursework to ensure that their coursework will apply toward the combined degree. Students must take the GRE and apply for admission to candidacy by the end of their junior year.

The Bachelor’s Curriculum
Students must complete the requirements of the B.A. or the B.S. degree with concentration in Mathematical Sciences or Mathematics from the Wilkes Honors College.  In addition, students must complete MAS 4107 Linear Algebra 2 and STA 4442 Probability and Statistics 1.

Twelve graduate credits from the Department of Mathematical Sciences can be counted toward both the bachelor’s degree and the master's degree. Four graduate courses may to be shared between the bachelor's degree and the master's degree.

Take at least two of the core courses
