Accelerated Degree in Mathematics (BS + MS)
Earn Your Advanced Degree Sooner
The accelerated degree program in mathematics (BS+MS) is an exciting opportunity for highly motivated math students to take full advantage of the academic resources and research agenda that Drexel University has to offer. Graduates of the program build an in-depth understanding of the concepts introduced in the undergraduate courses and the more complex topics at the advanced level.
The combined degree offers our graduates a competitive advantage over students who have only obtained an undergraduate degree, allowing them to stand out when they start their professional careers. Additionally, the program is well suited for students who intend to apply to doctoral programs in mathematics as well as related areas (such as statistics, biostatistics, public health, graduate actuarial studies, mathematical finance). Many of our accelerated degree students get accepted into some of the nation's most elite and competitive graduate mathematics programs.
The accelerated degree in Mathematics (BS + MS) is designed for students who are advanced in the Mathematics major, typically arriving with advanced placement credit in calculus. Requirements for the graduate portion of the program are the same as for the MS in Mathematics.
Students may apply to the combined BS + MS Mathematics program when they have attained 90 credits and no more than 120 credits. Students must complete an application for the Mathematics accelerated program through the Graduate College of Drexel University and email the graduate adviser of their choosing to request entry into the program. The graduate committee will make the final decision.
To gain entry into the accelerated degree in Mathematics (BS + MS) program, it is necessary to satisfy the following conditions:
- Complete two of the following: MATH 331, 332, 401 and 402, with an average GPA of at least 3.75 total in the two or more of these courses taken
- Have an overall GPA of at least 3.5
- Have a GPA of at least 3.8 in the mathematics major
Students with multiple majors may apply to the combined Mathematics degree as long as one of their majors is Mathematics. However, they will need to obtain signatures of the mathematics department advisers for their BS + MS accelerated degree paperwork, not advisers from their other majors.
