Mathematics Bachelor's Degree Overview
Mathematics at UT is discovery: the discovery of unusual soap bubbles, the discovery of new insight into the quantum world, the discovery of the most efficient treatments of diseases. Come and join in the adventure. What you will learn is the foundation of science, engineering and technology. But, it is more than that: there are worlds of mathematics beyond the physical world and your studies will open you up to them.
Weoffer a broad selection of programs in the mathematical sciences. Students can choose to concentrate in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, statistics and mathematics with computer science. Study of any of these areas will strengthen your ability to think carefully and logically, skills that are needed to succeed in many professions.
College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics Highlights
- Low faculty-to-student ratio - Most of our students work one-on-one with faculty members, which can lead to great recommendation letters for jobs or graduate school.
- Masters and Ph.D. programs in every major - Our college offers strong graduate programs, if students want to continue their education. The presence of graduate degrees in each major also boosts the prestige of the undergraduate programs.
- Longest-running exchange program - Students have the chance to spend a semester or year at the University of Salford in England, while those students come to UT and enrich our programs with an international perspective.
- Top-notch labs, spaces and equipment - We have some of the premier science facilities on campus — greenhouses, wet and dry labs, an arboretum, the Lake Erie Center on the banks of the lake and the Ritter Planetarium, which was fully renovated in 2011 - just to name a few.
- More chances for undergraduate research - We help students get into the lab and start researching with faculty members as undergraduates, whereas some schools don't offer this until graduate school.
Mathematicians are in demand in many areas such as research and development, system analysis, statistics, computer programming, finance and teaching. Most mathematicians are highly satisfied with their careers.
