The B.S./M.S. program in Mathematics is a five year program that gives academically successful Loyola undergraduates the opportunity to pursue the M.S. degree in Mathematics while completing their B.S. degree. The applicant can be pursuing any of the B.S. degrees offered by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. There are several advantages to enrolling in the B.S./M.S. program.

Requirements for Completion of the B.S./M.S. Program

After admission to the B.S./M.S. program, students may take 3 credit hours of 400-level mathematics or statistics courses during their senior year. Generally, students take the remaining six 400-level classes during the fifth year. This schedule can be modified for students desiring to finish the combined program in less than five years. Students in the program are expected to consult regularly with the Graduate Program Director to insure that they are on track for completion of both the B.S. and M.S. degrees.
