Undergraduate Program


We offer two undergraduate degree programs in mathematics.

  • The mathematics program leads to a general degree in mathematics. It provides a broad overview of modern mathematics, as well as a solid foundation for graduate study.
  • The mathematics licensure program provides additional courses and field experience in lieu of a minor, leading to licensure to teach at the secondary level.

Both programs are described in the Undergraduate Handbook, which includes course descriptions and timelines:

  • Undergraduate handbook, Rev. 2.0, May 2012 (PDF file)
    • Four-Year Course Scheduling is found on page 31.
    • Semester by Semester Guides for MathBS, MathLBS, and transfer students are found on pp. 15-18.

Enrichment opportunities

Students enrolled in the Honors College, as well as students who wish to graduate with Latin Honors, should familiarize themselves with the material in the Honors Handbook, paying special attention to the material on the comprehensive exam and the timeline.

Undergraduate research program

The department has an active research program for undergraduates, with some students co-authoring journal articles with their faculty advisers. An undergraduate research project can also be used to qualify for Latin Honors.
