# Undergraduate Degree Programs

## EXPERIENTIAL MAJOR MAPS

Learn more about our degree plans.

Thank you for your interest in the undergraduate program in the UTA Department of Mathematics! We offer programs leading to either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mathematics. The B.S. degree may also be acquired with concentration in of one of these options: actuarial science, applied mathematics, pure mathematics, statistics, or secondary teaching certification through the UTeach Arlington program.

### Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (General)

The B.S. in Mathematics (without a focus option) is primarily intended for students wishing to pursue graduate work in mathematics or for mathematics students who have not yet decided on their career direction. However, it is becoming more and more apparent that some students want to learn skills that aid in solving applied problems in business and the emerging high-tech industries. For this latter student, we offer a Bachelor of Science degree with several focus options from which to choose.

### Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (Actuarial Science)

The B.S. in Mathematics with the Actuarial Science option is intended for students with an interest in a career involving various applications of mathematics to the world of business.

### Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (Industrial and Applied Mathematics)

The B.S. in Mathematics with the Industrial and Applied Mathematics option is intended for students seeking careers as mathematicians in the emerging high-tech industries.

### Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (Pure Mathematics)

The B.S. in Mathematics with the Pure Mathematics option is intended for students who want to study the basic concepts and structures underlying mathematics. Its purpose is to search for a deeper understanding and an expanded knowledge of mathematics itself.

### Bachelor of Science in Mathematics (Statistics)

The B.S. in Mathematics with the Statistics option is intended for students with an interest in a career involving various applications of mathematics to the world of business.

### Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with Secondary Teacher Certification (UTeach Arlington)

The B.S. in Mathematics with the Secondary Teaching Certification option is intended for students desiring to teach mathematics at the secondary school level. Teacher certification is offered through UTA's UTeach Arlington program, and interested students should schedule an appointment with the UTeach Arlington academic advisor.

### Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The B.A. in Mathematics degree is intended for those students seeking a traditional liberal arts education with an emphasis on mathematics. It provides students with a broad overview of modern mathematics.

### Minor in Mathematics

Students in non-engineering majors may minor in mathematics by taking 18 hours of mathematics courses with an average GPA in mathematics courses of 2.0, and with at least six hours of 3000/4000 level courses. The courses that may be counted toward a math minor are MATH 1426 and above, except for capstone mathematics courses specifically for prospective middle or secondary grades mathematics teachers. Nine hours of the minor must be taken in residence. Engineering majors seeking a math minor should refer to the College of Engineering section of the Course Catalog for the requirements for the engineering math minor.
