Mathematics, B.S./B.A./M.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Arts and Sciences

The bachelor‘s/master‘s degree program is designed to provide a student in mathematics a means to complete the requirements for both degrees in a period of five years. The key feature of the program is that a student can count up to 12 hours of graduate level courses satisfying requirements for the B.A. or B.S. towards the M.S. in mathematics.

  1. Students in the B.A. or B.S. program in mathematics who have:
    1. Completed a minimum of 75 and a maximum of 98 credit hours in their undergraduate programs in mathematics, including credits earned from advanced placement if they started at UNCW or are transfer students and have completed a minimum of 2 semesters as a full-time student at UNCW, a minimum of 24 hours.
    2. Completed a minimum of 9 hours of 300-400 level mathematics or statistics courses.
    3. A minimum accumulated grade point average of 3.00/4.00 and a minimum grade point average of 3.00/4.00 on all 300-400 level mathematics or statistics courses at UNCW.

Students may apply to the department chair for permission to apply up to 12 credit hours of graduate level course work during their senior year toward their future master‘s degree.

  1. In his/her senior year, the student must submit the standard application for admission to the Graduate School including: an application form, application fee, transcripts, and GRE scores to the Graduate School. In addition, a graduate degree plan, signed by the prospective student, the department chair, and the graduate coordinator must be submitted before the beginning of the student‘s senior year. Departmental permission to apply to the bachelor‘s/master‘s degree program does not guarantee admission to the Graduate School. Admission is contingent on meeting eligibility requirements at the time of entering the graduate program.
  2. The graduate degree plan for the master‘s degree must clearly indicate:
    • Courses (maximum of 12 graduate credit hours) that will be double-counted for both bachelor‘s and master‘s degree;
    • Additional graduate courses that will be taken but not counted toward the bachelor‘s degree;
    • The student intends to fulfill his/her course requirements for the master‘s degree no later than a year after receiving the bachelor‘s;
    • Intended graduation date for the master‘s degree.

For additional information about the bachelor‘s/master‘s degree program and its requirements, students should contact the graduate coordinator in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
