Mathematics - 5-Year Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science in Mathematics
The combined degree program enables ambitious and academically talented mathematics majors at Texas A&M University to earn both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree within a period of five years after entering Texas A&M. The curriculum in the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics 5-year combined program affords students to undertake a traditional liberal arts education in mathematics. Students in this program investigate a broad array of techniques in mathematics and pursue electives in related fields that demonstrate how mathematics is fundamental to the world at large. The degree is well suited for students interested in pursuing mathematics and some other area, and a minor field of study is required for this degree.
Among the various advantages of the program, upon its completion a student will be in an exceptionally strong position to enter:
- The professional industrial job marketplace;
- A career in secondary education;
- A doctoral program in mathematics, or in a related discipline, at Texas A&M or another university.
The related disciplines include computer science, engineering, physics, statistics, genetics, economics, business administration, education, and biology.
Eligibility for entering a doctoral program in one of these disciplines would depend in part on the undergraduate and graduate external options and areas of emphasis that were reflected in a student's individual degree plan.
