The department offers programs of study leading to the BA, BS, MA, MS and PhD degrees with a major in mathematics. Its faculty is dedicated to excellence in scholarship and teaching. The faculty supports a strong program of instruction and research, having as its core a solid foundation of mathematical theory that furnishes the tools necessary to address and solve crucial problems in maintaining, improving and protecting the world. The program also promulgates mathematics as a discipline in its own right, a body of pure knowledge with exceptional power, enabling its practitioners and those who diligently study it to be adaptable and effective forces in the workplace.

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

All students enrolling for their first UNT mathematics course are required to take a placement
examination and obtain a course approval form from the Department of Mathematics. Consult the
*Schedule of Classes *for details. Students who are required to take mathematics must enroll for the appropriate mathematics class
during their first year at UNT.

The department offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the following areas:

- 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.

A minimum of 128 hours is required, of which 42 must be advanced, and fulfillment of degree requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree as specified in the College of Arts and Sciences section of this catalog.
