Math Focus: Theory of analytic functions
Studying in the US

I am currently somophore and I am taking a major in computer science , I've always been thinking about taking a double major
in maths as well but , I thought that would be so difficult , so I decided to take a minor in Maths and maybe take a Master degree
in the subject .
Well, I have always been thinking about completing my higher education in the US if possible , but I don't know what should I do ?
and how ? ,,, I am interested in series , integration , special functions and complex analysis (Currently reading about it ) so I wondered how the system
works in the US and I have many questions ?

1- Can I ,for example , take a Master in both Maths and Computer science at the same time .
2- ?Should I have a Bachelore degree in Maths to study Master ?
3- How should I apply to study there, what are the requirements ?
4- If I take as Master should I specify a certain field or will it be so general ?

Thanks in advance !

That's probably not realistic, it would take too much time. At my university there would be almost no overlap (probably 0 overlap) between the two.

You'll have a lot of work to do beforehand if you don't have a Bachelor's degree. You could probably get in but you'll spend a semester or two just taking undergrad classes to prepare.

It varies a lot.

The classes will most likely be general, but if you do a thesis that will of course be in a narrow specialty subject.
