Accelerated BS-MS-Mathematics

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 the undergraduate degree. To be admitted to the BS/MS Accelerated program in Mathematics, the candidate must be a Mathematics major with an overall Undergraduate GPA of 3.25.  Students must apply for the accelerated program during the semester they will earn 90 semester hours or more towards their bachelors program.  Once admitted, the BS/MS candidate must maintain a 3.25 Undergraduate GPA.

Additional six graduate hours can be taken in the senior year for graduate credit only, which won’t be counted to the BS degree, ineligible for final aid, and approval is needed. A minor or second major is strongly suggested. Meet a math faculty member to choose a minor or a second major and for taking graduate classes.
