Honors College Tracks in Mathematics

Do you enjoy problem solving? Are you interested in learning advanced mathematics or using mathematical tools to solve real world problems? Then consider one of the Math Department’s Honors Tracks!

Our Honors College Programs allow students the freedom to pursue mathematics as it relates to different fields. The Department of Mathematics has Honors College Programs in the following department concentrations (tracks): theoretical mathematics (also referred to as the traditional track), applied mathematics (with chemistry and physics options), mathematical biology, financial mathematics, actuarial science, and mathematics for educators.  Specific courses vary between tracks, but all students in an Honors College Program will complete their degree with rigorous training in the mathematical sciences.  Students who satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences Honors Program requirements and successfully complete honors in one of the Department of Mathematics tracks will receive the designation with honors in Arts and Sciences on their graduation diploma.

Students graduating with a degree in mathematics are prepared to enter a wide variety of careers in different areas including insurance companies, non-governmental organizations, computer firms, biotech and medical companies, as well as government labs and research institutes.
