Departmental Advising

The major in mathematics prepares students for a wide variety of careers and is a very broad academic field. In order to better direct students toward a specialization majors in mathematics are required to choose from a variety of concentrations (tracks). In order to better advise students, the advisors are matched to students in particular tracks. If you have general questions about the major, please contact Jim Gleason. If you have questions about your specific program, then please contact the appropriate advisor listed below.

The University Scholars Program is intended for gifted and highly motivated candidates for BS degrees at The University of Alabama whose objectives include degrees at the master’s or doctoral level. In the Department of Mathematics, with a closely integrated undergraduate and graduate program, qualified students begin graduate study in their senior year; such a program may lead to simultaneous completion of requirements for both master’s and bachelor’s degrees, each within its specified framework.

Students in the University Scholars Program are classified as undergraduates until they complete requirements for their undergraduate degrees and therefore may not hold graduate assistantships until their classifications are changed to graduate status. At that time, University Scholars will also become eligible for graduate fellowships and scholarships.
