Mathematics, BS/MS

Note: This curriculum reflects only course work to be taken as an undergraduate student. For additional course work to be taken as a graduate student, see the graduate program in the Northeastern University Graduate Catalog.

Undergraduate students apply to the PlusOne bachelor’s/master’s program through the graduate school. Once admitted, students may count a maximum of 16 semester hours of graduate credit toward the undergraduate degree.

Complete all courses listed below unless otherwise indicated. Also complete any corequisite labs, recitations, clinicals, or tools courses where specified and complete any additional courses needed beyond specific college and major requirements to satisfy graduation credit requirements.
