The Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Program in Mathematics allows outstanding students majoring in mathematics to begin earning credit toward a masters degree in mathematics while completing their Bachelor’s degree by allowing these exceptional students to count up to 6 hours toward both degrees. Upon completion of the undergraduate degree, with a satisfactory undergraduate grade point average and a grade of “B” or better in all graduate courses completed, the student may move to full graduate status in the Mathematics Masters Program, and the courses taken as an undergraduate will be applied toward the masters degree. Students applying for the accelerated program must: • Have completed at least 90 hours toward a Bachelor’s degree • Have completed at least 30 hours of the 90 hours of coursework at the University of West Georgia • Have a UWG GPA of 3.2 or higher • Meet all admission requirements for the Mathematics Masters Program with the exception of the completed undergraduate degree


Core Areas A, B, C, D, and E: 42 Hours


(including MATH 1113  in Core Area A and MATH 1634  Core Area D)

Core Area F: 18 Hours

Accelerated Masters Track

Students on the accelerated masters track must choose either Plan A (traditional), Plan B (applied), or Plan C (statistics/actuarial) for their undergraduate program of study.  They may substitute up to two 6000-level courses (from a department-approved list) for the corresponding 4000-level courses in their undergraduate program, and those courses will count toward both their B.S. and M.S. degrees.
