Undergraduate Programs

Our programs provide the tools for students to build a sound foundation of knowledge in contemporary and classical fields of mathematics and statistics. Students will learn to develop their critical thinking and effective analytical communication, and to integrate the knowledge into a solid framework of mathematical understanding. 

Degree Options

The Department of Mathematical Sciences offers a major leading to a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics or Statistics. All programs begin with a year of calculus. 

The Statistics and Actuarial Sciences track (Math-SA) is being phased out for new students. Current Math-SA students can find the program description here

Scholarships and Awards

A&S Scholarships: If you are enrolled in an Arts & Sciences degree program, you may be eligible for A&S Scholarships. Visit their website to learn how to apply and to see the frequently asked questions. 

TAFT Summer Undergraduate Research Mentor-Mentee Award: The Taft Summer Undergraduate Research Mentor-Mentee Award Program allows Taft faculty, in conjunction with selected undergraduate students, to seek up to $4,000 in funding for undertaking research projects. It is designed to allow undergraduate students to work on their own research project with a faculty mentor and/or for undergraduate students to conduct research for a faculty member.

TAFT Undergraduate Enrichment: Taft-eligible undergraduate students engaged in research projects that will enhance their learning experience in their major field are eligible to receive up to $2,000 for any 24-month period. Eligible projects include but are not limited to research expenses, travel to a library, archives, museum, or conference, a language immersion program, or an organized field trip. Regardless of the activity, there must be a research component within the proposed project. Both individual and group applications are accepted. Awards are made on a competitive basis.

Internships and Experiential Learning

Internships: Majors/second majors who do well in their first two years of math at UC can seek a supervised internship with an approved employer for elective credit. 

Experience-Based Learning: Today, every UC student puts classroom knowledge to the test through experience-based learning opportunities. Visit the website to learn how you can get the experience.


Up-to-date information for current math/stats undergraduates is available on Canvas. Look for the “Math and Stat Undergraduates - Majors and Minors” community. If you are a math major or minor and don’t see this community course in Canvas, please contact the Undergraduate Program Director, Dr. Crystal Clough
