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 identified four optional tracks of study within the curriculum. The B.S. in Math degree requires the following 39 credit hours of coursework and at least 9 additional credit hours of upper division mathematics courses:
