The foundations of our high-tech society rest on mathematics and problem solving. Every laptop, every smartphone, and every video game console rely on mathematics. Exploring and understanding the world in which we live is a matter of mathematical inquiry and discovery. With a major in Mathematics and a degree from MTSU, a student will have the keys to open doors of employment or further study in many areas, including science, statistics, business, finance, insurance, health, education, and the technologies of tomorrow.

Jacob Basham knows better than most how the study of mathematics can prove vital to the pursuit of a career in another field. A McNair Scholar and first-generation college student pursuing a degree in Professional Mathematics, Basham has been accepted to medical school at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine for their dual M.D. /Ph.D. program. For him, math was just the beginning. “My career goals hover around becoming a physician in translational medicine and clinical research,” Basham says. “I want to be at the places where new treatments are being researched and our most deadly diseases are being eradicated.”

Alex Murphy, a Noyce Scholarship recipient, is preparing to be a teacher of secondary mathematics. He has been doing research since his sophomore year when he became interested in understanding how pre-service teachers construct their knowledge of mathematics. His senior honors thesis was a case study reviewing his development of both mathematical and pedagogical metacognition in order to construct a reflective model that other pre-service mathematics teachers could follow. "The mathematics I know is a living knowledge that has blended very naturally with my ability to communicate it. This study has challenged me to remain a lifelong learner—especially with graduation so close," Murphy said. In addition to being a scholar, Alex does volunteer work at orphanages in Haiti during summer breaks.

A degree in Mathematics from MTSU is a sure way to transform being a problem solver into a fulfilling, always-in-demand career. Examples of potential positions include

- Actuary
- Astrophysicist
- College professor
- Computer programmer
- Controller
- Database manager
- Demographer
- Information scientist
- Inventory control specialist
- Investment researcher

Undergraduate students interested in mathematical modeling and problem solving can pursue a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree with a major in Mathematics, choosing one of three concentrations: Actuarial Science, Mathematics Education, or Professional Mathematics.

Undergraduate minors are available in three areas: Mathematics; Statistics; and Mathematics for Managerial, Social, and Life Sciences.

For graduate students, the Department of Mathematical Sciences offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree with a major in Mathematics and concentrations in General Mathematics, Industrial Mathematics, and Research Preparation.

A Master of Science in Teaching (M.S.T.) degree with a major in Mathematics is also available, with concentrations in Middle Grade Mathematics and Secondary Mathematics.

The Master of Science in Professional Science (M.S.P.S.) offers concentrations in Actuarial Science and Biostatistics.

A graduate minor in Mathematics is also offered.

Actuarial Science Mathematics Education Professional Mathematics Advanced Professional Mathematics Business Professional Mathematics General Professional Mathematics Industrial Professional Mathematics Statistics

The sample schedule below is based on the current undergraduate catalog. It is not
a substitute for academic advisement. Contact your advisor if you have any questions
about scheduling or about your degree requirements or consult the undergraduate catalog
(catalog.mtsu.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years. (Refer to the scholarships website for information regarding use of the Lottery Scholarship for the summer term.)
