The Bachelor’s / Master’s Program is designed to enable exceptionally well-qualified and highly motivated AMS undergraduates to fulfill the requirements for both degrees within five years. The program is selective, with high standards for admission, because of the outstanding achievement and commitment required to complete it on schedule. Alternatively, students interested in the Master’s degree may pursue the traditional path of completing the Bachelor’s degree before beginning graduate study.

BS/MSE students are allowed to use up to four 400-level courses taken while they were in undergraduate status toward completion of the MSE requirements.
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics allows students to use a maximum of two courses at to satisfy course requirements in both their Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs.
