The Combined BS/MA Program allows Villanova students to earn both a Bachelor of Science (BS) Master of Arts degree in Mathematics (MA) in approximately five years. Students in the program take graduate mathematics courses during part of the time normally allotted to an undergraduate program.
Some of these courses are counted toward both the BS degree and the MA degree. As a result, they can earn a BS degree in Mathematics after four years and an MA degree after approximately one additional year of study. In addition to benefiting from an accelerated timeframe, students in the combined program may receive a graduate tuition remission benefit. A maximum of 5 students may be accepted into the program each academic year.
