Mathematics, B.S./M.S.

For qualified students, the department offers a combined B.S./M.S. program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and the Master of Science in Applied Mathematics. By taking advantage of the integrated features of the program, a student can earn two degrees in 141 credits which, if pursued separately, would require at least 150 credits. This allows students to transfer up to nine credits from their undergraduate transcript to their graduate transcript, which results in a corresponding decrease in the number of credits required for completion of the M.S. degree. It is strongly recommended that students in this program take core graduate courses at the 600 level in their senior year.

Interested students should apply for this program after they have completed 60 credits, including transfer credits, toward a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. All applicants who have completed MATH 151 , MATH 152 , MATH 221 , MATH 251  and CMSC 201  at UMBC with a GPA of 3.0 or higher will be accepted into the program. Application during or immediately subsequent to taking MATH 301  is recommended. All other applicants will have their applications reviewed by the department and may be admitted provisionally.
