This program offers students an opportunity to meet the full requirements of the BS and MS in a shorter time period than the separate degree programs. The students may complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics and Statistics in four years and the Master’s degree in Mathematics the fifth year.

Admission Requirements

  1. The applicant must be a UMKC undergraduate student who has completed a minimum of 60 cumulative credit hours.
  2. The applicant should complete the BS/MS application form and submit it to both the undergraduate ( and graduate advisors (
  3. The applicant must satisfactorily complete the following courses:
    1.  MATH 300 Linear Algebra I
    2. MATH 301 On Solid Ground: Sets and Proofs, or any 400-level class that hasMATH 301  as a prerequisite. For instance, MATH 410 , MATH 420 , or MATH 402
    3. MATH 345 Ordinary Differential Equations
  4. A minimum overall GPA of 3.0 is required.
  5. A minimum GPA of 3.2 in Math/Stat courses is requred
