Undergraduate students and Prof. Varley
enjoying the new Undergraduate Study Area
Most undergraduate students at UGA take at least one core course in mathematics. We offer courses in Mathematical Modeling (MATH 1101), Mathematics of Decision Making (MATH 1060), and Precalculus (MATH 1113). Many students take one or more calculus classes.
Mathematics is a fundamental tool that is used in many disciplines, among them economics, engineering, finance, chemistry, physics, meteorology, genetics, ecology, and, of course, statistics and computer science.
We have some unusual courses for undergraduates with a high aptitude for mathematics and an interest in being challenged. Universities such as University of Chicago, Ohio State University, Vanderbilt, and Stanford offer courses comparable to MATH 2400(H)-2410(H) and/or MATH 3500(H)-3510(H).
We offer a B.S. in Mathematics. The degree program is quite versatile and, although some of our majors go on to graduate work, the majority pursue careers or graduate study in a variety of disciplines: actuarial science, bioinformatics, medical school, law school, economics and finance, software design. We also have a page describing various careers in mathematics.
We have a brand-new undergraduate study area (thank you, UGA and NSF) and opportunities for undergraduates to participate in research groups.
Each year we hold a math major fair.
