Mathematics - 5-Year Bachelor of Science 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 Science in Mathematics 5-year combined program explores mathematical problems and their interplay with science and engineering. Students in this program investigate a broad array of techniques in pure mathematics and pursue electives in science and related fields that demonstrate the crucial underpinnings of mathematics in our understanding of information, science, and technology.
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.
