Dual Degree Mathematics (B.A.) and Data Science (M.S.)


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree Programs

The Mathematical Sciences Department at Salve Regina University offers a dual 3+2 program with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth leading to a B.A. in mathematics and a minor in data analytics from Salve Regina University and a master’s degree in data science from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

Students in this 5-year program take courses to fulfill the requirements for the B.A. in mathematics and a minor in data analytics at Salve Regina University in the first three years of study, after which they take courses at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for two additional years. In the fourth year of this program, students take courses at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for the master’s degree in data science and to complete their B.A. in mathematics from Salve Regina University. Upon successful completion of courses at the end of the fourth year, students in this program are awarded the B.A. in mathematics with a minor in data analytics and graduate with their class at Salve Regina University’s commencement. In the fifth year of this program, students complete the requirements for a master’s degree in data science from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

To remain in this program, students must maintain a 3.25 GPA, with no grade below a C- in any mathematics (MTH), computer science (CSC), data science and analytics (DSA) , or statistics (STA) course, and have the written recommendation of the department chair.

Major Requirements
