Students who earn degrees in mathematics readily obtain jobs with high-technology companies and in business, industry, government and teaching. Salaries and working conditions compare with those of engineers and scientists.

Students who plan to major in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology or computer science should have had four years of mathematics in high school, including pre-calculus. Students who are required to take mathematics as part of their degree program in college should have had at least two years of algebra and one year of geometry in high school.

Students who have had no mathematics courses at UNT must obtain a UNT mathematics department permit form before registering for a mathematics course.

Students who have not successfully completed either MATH 1010 from UNT or a transfer course at the level of college algebra or above will be asked to take a placement exam.

Students who have successfully completed a course at the level of college algebra or above will be asked on the first day of class to provide proof in the form of:

a. a grade report, transcript, or Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) printout reflecting the transfer course,

b. an AP or CLEP score report, or

c. a UNT mathematics department permit form.

- MATH 1100: MATH 1010 with a passing grade, or a UNT mathematics department permit form. A passing TASP mathematics score does not substitute for the MATH 1010 prerequisite.
- MATH 1190, 1400, 1650, 1680, 2090: MATH 1100 or equivalent with grade of C or better, or a UNT mathematics department permit form. MATH 2090 does not satisfy the College of Arts and Sciences degree requirement.

- Bachelor of Arts,
- Master of Arts,
- Master of Science, and
- Doctor of Philosophy, all with a major in mathematics; and
- Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.

2. **Major Requirements:** 34 hours of mathematics courses as follow: MATH 1710, 1720, 2510,
2520, 2700, 2730, 3510 and 4610, plus 9 hours numbered above 3150.

3. **Other Course Requirements:** Four laboratory science courses are required. Two of these must be
either BIOL 1710/1730 and 1720/1740 or GEOG 1710 and GEOL 1610. The other two courses must be
either PHYS 1710/1730 and 2220/2240 or CHEM 1410/1430 and 1420/1440.

Proficiency in a foreign language equivalent to 2050 is required. It is recommended that the required foreign language be German, French, Russian or Spanish. Students wishing to take some other language must consult the chair of the Department of Mathematics.

4. **Minor Requirements:** A minor of at least 18 hours (6 advanced).

5. **Electives:** See four-year plan.

6. **Other Requirements:** Bachelor's degree candidates in mathematics must present at least a 2.0
grade point average on all mathematics courses above 3150.

2. **Major Requirements:** 40 hours of math courses as follow: MATH 1710, 1720, 2510, 2520, 2700,
2730, 3410, 3510 and 4500, plus 12 hours numbered above 3150.

3. **Other Course Requirements:** Four laboratory science courses are required. Two of these must be
either BIOL 1710/1730 and 1720/1740, or GEOG 1710 and GEOL 1610. The other two courses must be
either PHYS 1710/1730 and 2220/2240, or CHEM 1410/1430 and 1420/1440.

Proficiency in a foreign language equivalent to 2050 is required. It is recommended that the required foreign language be German, French, Russian or Spanish. Students who wish to use another language must consult the chair of the Department of Mathematics.

4. **Minor Requirements:** A minor of 18 hours (6 advanced) in one of the following areas of
study: biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, physics or engineering technology.

5. **Other Requirements:** Bachelor's degree candidates in mathematics must present at least a 2.0
grade point average on all mathematics courses above 3150.

6. **Electives:** See four-year plan.

See the undergraduate adviser for a degree plan during the first year of study at UNT.

Students taking mathematics courses at the 2000-level or above are expected to be competent in computer programming, using languages such as BASIC, C, C++, Fortran, or PASCAL. This competency can be obtained through completion of CSCI 1110.

Teacher certification requirements were under review by the State Board for Educator Certification at the time this catalog went to press. Contact your undergraduate adviser and the Department of Teacher Education and Administration for current information.

The department administers four scholarship funds: the E.H. Hanson Scholarship, the Roger L. Perry Memorial Scholarship, the Mildred Masters McCarty Scholarship and the John Ed Allen Scholarship. Jobs as tutors and graders also are available for mathematics majors. Contact the mathematics department office for information and application forms.
