Dual BS-Mathematics/MS-Mathematical Risk Management

Five-year Program

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of Risk Management and Insurance in the Robinson College of Business jointly offer a dual degree program that links the BS in Mathematics and the Master of Science in Mathematical Risk Management. The program is designed to take five years. In general, at the end of the fourth year, a student will receive a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a concentration in Mathematical Risk Management; at the end of the fifth year, the student will receive a Master of Science in Risk Management and Insurance with a Mathematical Risk Management emphasis. The undergraduate portion meets the requirements of a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics even if a student does not proceed with the graduate portion of the program.

Admission Requirements

The BS-Mathematics/Master of Science in Mathematical Risk Management option will in general be available to BS-Math undergraduates who have completed at least 30 hours of academic credit at Georgia State University (excluding AP or transfer credits) and who have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 at Georgia State.
