WHAT ARE THE MATH MAJOR DEGREE OPTIONS?
There are two BA degree options and five BS degree options.
What's the difference between a BA and a BS?

BA degrees limit the number of hours of
mathematics that a student can count toward the degree to 36.
 BS degrees require more hours in the major than BA degrees.
 BA degrees
require one more language course than BS degrees.
The BA math degree options are:
Standard option
Mathematics for Middle Grades and Secondary School Teaching Option. Almost
all students choosing this option also enroll in the UTeach
program, which provides the nonmathematics courses (including student
teaching) preparing students to teach math or science. (Students
completing both this degree option and the UTeach program still need to
apply and be accepted for teacher certification.)
The BS math degree options are:
Option I: Actuarial Science.
This option is intended to help prepare students for the Actuarial
Profession (the profession involved with the mathematical end of
insurance.)
Option II: Applied Mathematics. This option is aimed at students planning to attend graduate school in applied mathematics.
Option III: Mathematical Sciences. This option has two specializations:
Specialization in Statistics, Probability, and Data Analysis.
This specialization is intended to help prepare students for careers
(in government, industry, and business) involving statistics and
probability, and for graduate school in professions (such as Public
Health, Public Policy, Law, Educational Testing and Measurement,
Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Operations Research, as well as
Statistics) where a background in probability and statistics is helpful.
Specialization in Scientific Computing.
This specialization prepares students for careers as programmers or
systems analysts in jobs where the programming involves mathematical
techniques.
Option IV: Pure Mathematics. This option is intended to prepare students for graduate school in pure mathematics.
Option V: Teaching.
This option is intended to prepare students for teaching mathematics
in middle grades or secondary school. It includes the requirements of
the UTeach program, which provides nonmathematics courses (including
student
teaching) preparing students to teach math or science. (Students
completing this degree program still need to apply and be accepted for teacher
certification.)
