Our faculty come from a variety of backgrounds and specialties. Most of our 300+ level classes are taught by faculty in the department.


With over 400 declared majors, we are able to offer a diverse program of study that can stand alone or complement a quantitatively focused second major. Our majors enjoy individualized advising, allowing our students to form relationships with the faculty. In addition, regular department events such as our weekly Undergraduate Tea provide opportunities to meet and learn from the individuals in our department.

Major Programs

We offer a major in mathematics that awards a bachelor of science (BS) degree.

Students majoring in math can choose from the following optional concentrations:

  • Pure Mathematics
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Statistics and Optimization
  • Mathematics Education*

*This track is open to all students and should be followed by those planning to enter the teaching profession in the future. Please note that this track does not lead to teacher certification. Students interested in earning teacher certification must be admitted through the College of Education. For more information, visit the campus catalog.

Minor Programs

In addition to our major, we offer minors in mathematics and mathematical statistics. A minor in mathematics education is also available; it is designed for students following the College of Education’s mathematics education track. 

Learn about the course requirements for our major and minors in the Department of Mathematics section of the UA Undergraduate Catalog.
