This concentration leads to a B.A. or B.S. degree with a major in mathematics, and is appropriate for students planning careers in industry or graduate study in mathematics.
The minimum requirement for a B.S. degree is 128 credit hours. See: Academic Policies and Procedures.

Courses required for all concentrations in the major.
Only MA courses numbered 171 or above may be included in a mathematics major, and an overall average of C is required for all UAH MA or ST courses that are included in a mathematics major. Information on other MA course requirements is given in Concentrations I, II, and III below. Students who think that substitutions in those concentrations can produce a program better suited to their needs should consult their faculty advisor about the feasibility of such substitutions. All MA electives must be approved by the student's faculty advisor prior to registering for the courses. All majors in mathematics must satisfy the appropriate (B.S. or B.A.) Charger Foundation and degree requirements.
Students majoring in other academic areas who wish to obtain a more solid background in mathematics than is provided by a minor may pursue a second major in mathematics rather than a minor in mathematics. Concentration III is specifically designed for such students.
The MA electives must be pre-approved by the student's mathematics advisor. The Charger Foundations are outlined here.
