## Undergraduate Program

**The Tennessee Tech 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 multiple concentrations
with specific minors attached, like business or computer science. The Department
has also kept its basic program of study so Math majors may also pick a variety of
electives and choose from the many minors offered at Tennessee Tech. Finally, graduates
from our Department must be well rounded. Therefore, the B.S. in Mathematics at Tennessee
Tech, regardless of concentration, requires the following 39 credit hours of coursework:

- Math 1910-Calculus I
- Math 1920-Calculus II
- Math 2010-Introduction to Linear Algebra
- Math 2110-Calculus III
