For students entering with advanced placement credits, it is possible to earn both the A.B. and M.A. degrees in an integrated four-year or five-year program. The norm in mathematics is for the student to complete this program in four years, doing research for and writing an M.A. thesis in the fourth year. A student normally applies to this program during her sophomore year. Details of the requirement can be found at Graduate Program/Degree Requirements.

We also have curricula designed for students who would like to complete both the A.B./M.A. Program in Mathematics and either a minor in Education or the Secondary Teaching Certification Program. See A.B./M.A./Certification.
