### Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

The BA in Mathematics requires all sections of the College of Arts and Science requirements (CAS) and provides a broader range of studies.

The BA in Mathematics requires all sections of the College of Arts and Science requirements (CAS) and provides a broader range of studies.

The BS in Mathematics requires only the language section of the College of Arts and Science requirements (CAS) and provides a more technical education.

The BS in Mathematics and Statistics is similar to the Mathematics BS program with additional courses in statistics. This degree is offered jointly with the Department of Statistics

Students will develop a foundation in applied mathematics and computation that will allow them to build mathematical models and analyze data in real-world settings. Students choose electives in the sciences, technology, engineering, or other areas of interest to complement and provide context for their mathematical training.

This minor provides students with an increased understanding of, and competence in, mathematics. Building on a base of calculus and linear algebra, already required for many majors, the program leads students through an introductory proof course, a theoretical course, and an applications course.

If you are getting close to satisfying all of the requirements for your Bachelor's degree in Math with time to spare, you may be able to leave Miami with a Master's degree in Mathematics! By carefully planning your program before or during your sophomore year, you can earn a Bachelor's degree in four years and a Master's degree in one more year.

Licensure to teach mathematics in secondary schools is an integral part of the B.S. degree in Integrated Mathematics Education (offered by the College of Education, Health, and Society). Students who wish to combine teacher licensure with a major in the Department of Mathematics should apply for admission to a licensure cohort.

This certificate prepares students to describe, formulate, and analyze real-world problems in mathematical terms. Students will be exposed to a broad range of applicable analytical tools arising in different areas of mathematics such as Dynamical Systems, Partial Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Graph Theory, etc. Examples that can be treated with these tools include mathematical models that describe the flow of water in a pipe, Keynesian cross model of a national economy, opinion dynamics, protein dynamics, chemical oscillators, predator-prey model, genetic control systems, chaotic waterwheels, neural networks, and network flows.

The Financial Mathematics certificate is designed to give students knowledge of mathematical finance in preparation for a career in the financial services industry. Students are trained in mathematical techniques used to analyze problems arising from finance. Examples include application of stochastic processes and partial differential equations to study stock markets and to price financial derivatives.

Our program is small when compared to many Ph.D.-granting departments. We usually have about 20 graduate students at a time providing small classes with a great deal of personal interaction between students and faculty.

*Critical Thinking:*Students will develop critical thinking skills that enable them to determine the validity of a given argument and will be able to construct mathematical arguments independently.*Content Knowledge:*Students will demonstrate depth of knowledge in the core content areas of mathematics and apply content knowledge to solve complex mathematical problems.*Communicating Mathematical Ideas:*Students will demonstrate the ability to clearly and effectively communicate mathematical ideas in writing in a manner appropriate for an identified audience.
