Mathematics Major/Minor Brochure: Five-Year B.A.-M.A.(or M.S.) Programs
The Department of Mathematics offers a number of programs which make it easy to move on from an undergraduate major in mathematics to a Master's degree in fields where graduates are in demand.
In the most standard path, at Rutgers or elsewhere, students apply to a Master's program in their senior year of college. Others apply after a period of employment. A Master of Science (M.S.) or Master of Arts (M.A.) degree can usually be completed in 2 years of full-time graduate study. Part-time study is often permitted.
In the intensive five-year B.A.-M.A. sequence at Rutgers, students take extra credits before graduating from college, work which can be transferred to the Master's program. Students apply in their third undergraduate year. With careful planning, the Master's degree can be earned in one year of full-time study after completion of the undergraduate degree. See the web page on the B.A.M.A. programs at Rutgers for further information.
