What is Mathematics?
Mathematical sciences include the disciplines of pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics. Mathematicians and statisticians use representations of abstract ideas and relationships to solve problems, in order to arrive at a general understanding of how these representations work, as well as how they could be applied. Mathematical sciences majors learn complex analytical and problem-solving skills while exploring a range of mathematical topics and problems. The certificate allows those in other disciplines to have a concentration in the mathematical sciences in an intentional way, short of a double major or dual degree.
Success Factors
The field of mathematical sciences is quite diverse, so success factors tend to vary. Certainly, good reasoning skills and logical thinking, along with the ability to communicate abstract concepts are important. Mathematicians enjoy challenging problems and find it difficult to stop working on a problem until they arrive at a satisfactory solution.

Freshman Admission Requirements
Readiness to take Math 1061 or higher level math courses as evidenced by prior coursework, advanced standing credits, or placement test. The certificate has a residency requirement. Students must earn a minimum of 9 credits in the College of Arts and Sciences at UC. Of these, a minimum of 6 credits toward the certificate must be at the 2000-level or higher.
Students already pursuing a degree in any college at UC can add the certificate to their program. Be sure to submit a declaration of the certificate program using our online form.
In addition, you must meet with the program director so that they are aware that you are pursuing the certificate and can advise you appropriately. Do this early enough to avoid delay in obtaining your certificate.
Students not currently pursuing a degree may declare the certificate after establishing non-matriculated status.
Graduation Requirements
Make sure that you have declared the certificate program online. Next, make sure that the certificate program director is aware of when you are finishing the program. If you are pursuing another bachelor's degree, your certificate will be reviewed at the time that you submit your separate degree application.
