The Department of Mathematics offers courses of study leading to either the Associate of Science degree, the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mathematics, and in mathematics with secondary education certification. An Associate’s degree (Associate Degree in Core Curriculum with Pathway Courses in Mathematics) is an option for those students pursuing a 2-year degree. The B.S. degree is offered on both the Dahlonega and Gainesville campuses. Students may begin their B.S. degree on any UNG campus but must complete the program on either the Dahlonega or Gainesville campuses.
In addition to courses, the department offers advisement for application to a variety of graduate and professional programs. Students should consult their academic advisor for assistance in choosing courses that both comply with degree requirements for a major in Mathematics and meet the admission requirements for the graduate career or professional program in which they have interest. Students aspiring secondary education teacher certification in mathematics usually complete the B.S. degree in Mathematics with secondary education certification but may complete their B.S. in Mathematics and then get certified through the post-baccalaureate or Master of Arts in Teaching programs in the College of Education.
The Department of Mathematics offers a dual degree program that allows students to receive both a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from UNG and a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Kennesaw State University, Georgia Southern University, Mercer University, the University of Georgia, or Clemson University. Students begin their studies at UNG and after completing a specified 90-credit-hour curriculum, transfer to the engineering college where they complete a degree in engineering. When the engineering degree is completed, the students receive a second bachelor’s degree from UNG.
Students may choose a minor in mathematics or statistics.
