Undergraduate Studies in Mathematics

Mathematics is one of the oldest and most basic fields of study. Mathematicians create new theories and techniques and apply these to the solution of problems that arise in a wide variety of disciplines, including business, science and engineering.

The UNI Math Department offers three different Bachelor of Arts degrees in Mathematics: Mathematics (General Use), Statistics and Actuarial Science, and Teaching.

There are also four different Mathematics Minors available to UNI students, each with a different emphasis: GeneralTeachingTeaching K-8, and Statistics and Actuarial Science.


Mathematics Major - Liberal Arts 

The Mathematics Major provides excellent preparation for graduate school in mathematics and other related areas such as physics, engineering, statistics, and economics. It may also be an appropriate major for students who are interested in careers in industry concentration on analytical and problem solving skills. the goal of the major program is to introduce some of the central ideas in various areas of mathematics and to develop problem-solving ability by helping students combine creative thinking with rigorous reasoning.

Mathematics Major - Teaching (Math Education) 

The undergraduate Mathematics Teaching Major has the intent of preparing secondary mathematics teachers. Our program is aligned with state licensure requirements, the CBMSrecommendations. Graduates of this program are robustly prepared to begin their teaching careers in secondary schools.

Please look at the UNI Math Department Course Rotations when scheduling your classes. 

     * If admitted to UNI in Fall 2012 or later, take this course in place of INSTTCH 1020.
     ** If MATH 1310 was taken before fall of 2010, it will satisfy this requirement.

NOTE: For departmental approval to student teach, a student on the program must satisfy the university requirements to student teach and the following specific departmental requirements:

      1.   Must earn a C- or better in MATH 1420; MATH 1421; MATH 2500; MATH 3530; MATH 4500; MATH 3610 or MATH 3600; MATH 3751; MATH 3303; MATH 3304.

      2.   Student's cumulative grade point average must be 2.25 or higher in all the departmental courses to be applied to this program.

      3.   If admitted to UNI Fall 2010 or later, your math GPA needs to be 2.5 or higher.
