Frequently Asked Questions

  • At UMass Lowell, you can complete most of the courses required to earn a math degree online. However, several required math courses are available during the evenings on-campus.
  • Neither a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) nor a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) is better than the other, but the curriculum and career options you can expect upon program completion will differ.

  • The time it takes to complete your math degree depends on how many courses you transfer and how many courses you can complete each semester. At UMass Lowell, you can transfer up to 90 credits toward a bachelor's, enabling you to complete your degree in as little as 12-36 months. However, you have as many years as you need to complete your math degree.
