The Department of Mathematics offers two degree programs in mathematics: the Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and the Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics.
The Bachelor of Science degree program has four plans, each designed for specific career goals: Plan A, the Traditional Track; Plan B, the Applied Mathematics Track; Plan C, the Statistics/Actuarial Track; and Plan D, the UTEACH Secondary Education Track. The student’s advisor will help the student choose the best track, based on the student’s interests.
Plan A, a traditional mathematics option, offers students a broad background in mathematics and is principally designed to prepare students for graduate study in pure or applied mathematics.
Plan B is designed to offer students a solid background in applied mathematics, prepare them for employment in government agencies such as communications, national security, and computer-related fields or industry such as engineering or computational types of work. It also prepares students for further study in mathematics.
Plan C, an option in applied statistics/ actuarial science, is designed to offer students a solid theoretical and applied background in statistics, preparing them for employment in a wide variety of interesting careers.
Plan D, an option in secondary education, is designed for students seeking mathematics teacher certification at the secondary level. Students who complete this option will qualify for certification in secondary education in mathematics.
The Bachelor of Arts degree program is designed for students seeking employment in government or business or those desiring further study in mathematics.
