We are pleased to hear of your interest in the Mathematics Department at The University of Georgia. We are proud of the work we've done to enhance the mathematics offerings for excellent mathematics students at The University of Georgia, and the major is a demanding and versatile one.
Majoring in Mathematics
The major in Mathematics at the University of Georgia is demanding yet versatile. Students benefit from the individual attention afforded by typically small class sizes, taking courses in linear algebra, geometry, sequences, differential equations, multivariable calculus, topology, number theory, probability, and others. Undergraduate research is encouraged and available through the Vertical Integration of Research and Education (VIGRE) and the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). An active Math Club further supplements student learning and opportunity.
Minoring in Mathematics
A mathematics minor makes a great combination with many majors at UGA, including statistics, computer science, biology, engineering, physics, and chemistry.
A minor in mathematics requires grades of C or above in either MATH 3200 or MATH 3500/3500H, and in four additional mathematics courses at the 3000 level or above. STAT 4510/6510 can be used in place of one of these four courses, except that a program cannot include both STAT 4510/6510 and MATH 4600/6600. The total number of upper division credit hours in the minor program should be at least 15, of which 9 must be earned in residence.
Please contact the Associate Head of the Department of Mathematics, Dr. Michael Usher, to discuss your minor program.
