Bachelor of Science with a major in Mathematics (MTH.BS)
The B.S. program in mathematics provides a foundation for students who wish to pursue graduate studies in any area of the mathematical sciences, to enter the actuarial profession, or to enter careers where mathematics is used in an engineering or science setting.

Bachelor of Arts with a major in Mathematics (MTH.BA)
The B.A. program in mathematics provides for a breadth of mathematical study within the context of a liberal arts degree. It may be chosen as a preparation for a professional career in business, education, law or social science. It affords the student a significant distribution of courses in the humanities and social sciences so that he or she can develop a concentration in a field other than mathematics. The student's career goals will generally suggest desirable upper level mathematics electives.

Bachelor of Science with a major in Applied Mathematical Economics (MTE)
The B.S. program in applied mathematical economics provides a foundation in economics, mathematics and statistics needed for graduate study in economics or applied statistics, or for research and technical careers in business or government service. This degree is offered jointly by the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Economics and Finance in the School of Business Administration.

Minor in Mathematics (MTH)
A minor in mathematics can be obtained by completing twelve semester hours of upper-level mathematics classes (300-400 level).

Minor in Actuarial Sciences (ACS)
The minor contains seven courses in mathematics for a total of twenty-four semester hours. Mathematics majors will take all but two of the mathematic requirements for the minor as part of their major requirements.
The minor also contains six courses in accounting, economics, and finance for a total of eighteen semester hours. Economics and finance majors will take all of these courses as part of their major requirements. They will be able to substitute two of the mathematics courses for those that they are required to take for their major.
