Mathematics Accelerated BS/MS

Accelerated Math Program (BS/MS)

Learn to effectively communicate mathematical ideas and logical problem-solving with the University of Central Missouri’s Accelerated Mathematics BS/MS program. This accelerated program enables you to earn both your bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in only five years. With this deeper knowledge, you’ll enter the job market more quickly and with fewer costs than if you had completed the two programs separately. Combined, this helps you start making a professional impact right away.

Learn from UCM’s expert faculty mentors

As a student in one of UCM’s accelerated degree completion programs, you’ll work with Mathematics faculty who support your educational and career goals and share their expertise with you inside and outside the classroom. With the program’s small class sizes, you’ll get focused, one-on-one time with professors who will function as both instructors and mentors during your educational journey.

What you will study

In the University of Central Missouri’s accelerated degree completion program in Mathematics, you’ll start taking graduate-level mathematics classes while you’re still earning your bachelor’s. You can then apply those advanced credits toward your master’s degree to complete both a BS and MS in five years. 

Your undergraduate classes for UCM’s accelerated Math program will focus on subjects such as calculus, differential equations, statistics, modern algebra and more. In your graduate courses, you’ll study these topics in greater depth while also advancing to classes in topology, combinatorics, statistics and computer science.

Two tracks for UCM’s accelerated degree completion program in Mathematics 

Once you finish your undergraduate classes, you can choose between two program tracks for your accelerated master’s degree:

  • Mathematics: Focus on building deep mathematical skills and performing graduate research.
  • Actuarial Science and Statistics: Apply your mathematical skills in actuarial science and statistics, and develop advanced problem-solving skills.

 

Unique learning opportunities in UCM’s accelerated Math program

You’ll have numerous opportunities to actively participate in your education at the University of Central Missouri in our accelerated degree completion program in Mathematics.

  • Undergraduate and graduate research: Work with a faculty mentor on research, starting as an undergraduate and continuing through the accelerated master’s program in Mathematics. You can write a thesis under the supervision of a faculty member who shares your research interests and may have the opportunity to publish your work alongside your faculty sponsor.
