# Undergraduate Degree Programs

The department offers full-time undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Science. Students may choose to concentrate in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, biomathematics or teacher preparation. The teacher preparation concentration offers, in partnership with the School of Education, a five-year program leading to both an undergraduate major in mathematics and a masterâ€™s degree in education.

## Bachelor of Science (B.S.)

The curriculum in mathematical sciences promotes understanding of the mathematical sciences and their structures, uses, and relationships to other disciplines.

## Accelerated B.S. and M.S.

The accelerated B.S. and M.S. program allows qualified students in the mathematics concentration to earn both the B.S. in mathematical sciences and the M.S. in mathematical sciences with a concentration in mathematics in a minimum of five years by completing approved graduate courses during the senior year of their undergraduate program.

## Minor in Mathematics

The minor in mathematics is designed for students with an interest in mathematics to deepen their knowledge of the subject while pursuing a major in another field. The goal is to provide students who do not major in mathematics the opportunity to develop the significant mathematical and analytical reasoning skills that the study of mathematics promotes.
