I am finishing up my BS degree in Computer Science, and I have been accepted to a PhD program in Computing and Information Sciences. I was wondering if it would be possible (and how feasible it would be) to get a Master's degree in Mathematics during my PhD by doing math research with a professor and publishing something?
Would I have to apply and be accepted to the Master's program at my university? How likely do you think this is? I have quite quite a bit of math completed from my BS in CS; I would estimate about 18-30 credits left not including the [required] electives if I was pursuing a BS in Applied Math.
