## Master of Science in Mathematics Accelerated (BS - MS) Option II Non-Thesis

The BS-MS accelerated degree program allows undergraduate students in the Mathematics program to begin coursework towards the non-thesis option of the Master of Science in Mathematics program during their senior year at Texas A&M University-Commerce. Students can earn a B.S. and M.S. degree in five years upon completion of degree requirements for both degrees. For this accelerated program, 6 credits of graduate coursework can be applied to both the BS and MS degrees. Once admitted, the BS/MS candidate must maintain a 3.25 Undergraduate GPA. In the final semester of the student’s undergraduate program, a new online Apply Texas Application for the master’s Accelerated program must be submitted to gain admission and continue taking classes to complete the master’s program.
