Mathematics, B.S./M.S.

Program Director

This dual-degree program enables qualified students to enroll in graduate courses late in their undergraduate program and apply the coursework toward the bachelor’s and master’s programs. This allows students to earn a B.S. and M.S. in five years, typically saving a year of time and tuition dollars.

This Georgia State University B.S./M.S. program offers students the ability to get an M.S. in mathematics with a concentration in statistics or an M.S. in mathematics with no concentration.

Students of mathematics and statistics enjoy high-paying job opportunities in a wide range of fields and are also well prepared for further study at the graduate level in mathematics, statistics and other fields.

Dual-Degree Program Eligibility

The Dual B.A. in History/Master of Heritage Preservation Degree program is available to undergraduate majors who maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5. Students may apply at any time once they have taken between 30-80 credit hours.

Email [email protected] to discuss eligibility. If eligible, you'll be provided the dual-degree program electronic application to fill out. Decisions are typically emailed within 10 business days.

Students accepted into dual undergraduate/graduate programs must work with the program graduate director each term to develop a plan for taking graduate courses during their senior year (or earlier for specific programs) while still completing their final semesters of bachelor’s work.

Acceptance into the dual-degree program does not constitute admission to the graduate degree program. Admission to the graduate program occurs in the senior year of undergraduate study and is contingent upon 1) successful completion of the bachelor’s degree, 2) performance in the graduate-level courses taken during the bachelor’s degree, and 3) meeting the other admission requirements of the specific program.

Dual Degree enrollment provides a range of benefits including the waiving of the GRE requirement and a graduate admission application fee when applying to the graduate program. Learn more about our dual degree program.

 

Math students are advised to consider carefully the career objectives they wish to pursue after graduation. A focused career objective can better enable students to tailor their program and may also suggest whether a co-op experience would be useful. Faculty who serve as academic advisers for majors can discuss choices and concentrations that are available to majors as well as whether to pursue the statistics concentration in the M.S. portion of the program.

Students in mathematics and statistics learn how to construct logical arguments, spot fallacies in widely accepted arguments, make quantitative models of real world situations, analyze data and find unifying mathematical structure in widely disparate phenomena. Students in the dual degree programs focus with greater depth and specialization on core topics in mathematics or statistics, providing deeper preparation for a career or for doctoral study.
