The TTU undergraduate mathematics curriculum provides students with a solid foundation in mathematics while offering a high degree of flexibility in course selection. Our students are able to prepare for many different career paths in business, industry, education, and government. To help students develop a course of study suited to their career goals, the department has identified five optional tracks of study within the curriculum.
The Actuarial Mathematics Track includes the following courses in mathematics, statistics, and business. It is designed for the student who wishes to pursue a career in the technical branches of finance or insurance.
The Applied Mathematics Track emphasizes courses needed by students who plan to work alongside scientists and engineers in industry. It is recommended that the student minor in computer science as a complement to this track.
The Pure Mathematics Track provides a good foundation for graduate study in a variety of subjects such as economics, finance, business, computer science, mathematics, and physics. Many students who pursue this option become high school or college mathematics teachers, but a significant number choose to work in industry or government.
The Statistics Track prepares students for immediate entry into the workforce or for graduate study. Statistical knowledge is a powerful tool that is used in many fields such as polotical science, business, biology, and medicine.
A student pursuing the B. S. in Mathematics can begin working toward licensure to be a high school math teacher by earning a Secondary Education Minor and taking the following mathematics courses required for teaching licensure.
The AMS recruits and supports a network of mathematical sciences departments that systematically provide job profiles of their recent bachelors-level alumni. The Early Career Profile Network is supported in part by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation under the auspices of the Sloan Career Cornerstone Series.
Career profiles are a valuable source of information for prospective mathematical sciences majors. The goal of the Early Career Profiles Network is to collect relevant and timely information about career opportunities for undergraduate mathematical sciences majors that can be broadly disseminated to high school and college students. This departmental network providing profiles of recent graduates is a straightforward and efficient way to continue the flow of timely career information needed by students, counselors, teachers, and faculty.
The American Mathematical Society has developed and administers a network of mathematical sciences departments that systematically provide job profiles of their recent bachelors-level alumni. The Early Career Profile Network is supported in part by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation under the auspices of the Sloan Career Cornerstone Series.
Students are not required to follow any of the five suggested tracks to earn the B. S. in Mathematics degree. The degree requirements are listed below in our degree checkout worksheets.
The courses required for the B.S.degree include 3 semesters of English; 2 semesters each of American History; Humanities/Fine Arts; Social Science (sociology, psychology, economics, etc.), a year-long sequence in a natural science (astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology or physics), 1 semester of computer science; 1 semester of speech and, forty-eight semester hours of mathematics.
