2024-2025 CATALOG

The Academic Catalog is the official listing of courses, programs of study, academic policies and degree requirements for Loyola University Chicago. It is published every year in advance of the next academic year.

Mathematics - Education Track/Mathematics (BS/MS)

The accelerated BS/MS program gives academically successful Loyola undergraduates the opportunity to pursue the MS degree in Mathematics while completing their BS degree. The BS in Mathematics - Education Track, coupled with a Major in Secondary Education or with a Master's Degree in Education, prepares students for a career in teaching secondary school mathematics. 

There are several advantages to pursuing the BS/MS program. Chief among them are time and cost: by taking graduate courses during their senior year (at the undergraduate tuition rate), students in the BS/MS program save one semester over the usual path to a Master’s degree. Additionally, students in the STEM fields holding an MS degree are more competitive for jobs.
