Department of Mathematical Sciences Website

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to high-level mathematics instruction, preparing students for careers in secondary education, actuarial science and industry, and for entrance into graduate studies in mathematics and statistics. The department offers two majors, one leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree and a second leading to a Bachelor Science degree.

The Bachelor of Arts degree is often sought by future secondary education majors or by students wishing a broader exposure to the humanities. The Bachelor of Science degree is sought by students who intend to go on to graduate studies or who would like a deeper and broader understanding of higher mathematics. The Department of Mathematical Sciences is committed to the values of a broad, interdisciplinary education, highlighting the utility and value of the mathematics degree in a wide variety of careers and disciplines.

Enrollment in or completion of any course at the level of MATH 2554 or higher is required to enter into the mathematics program.

Requirements for a Major in Mathematics, B.A. Degree: Students must complete 120 degree credit hours to include the minimum University Core requirements, the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences Graduation Requirements, and the following course requirements. Bolded courses from the list below may be applied to portions of the University Core requirements.

Total Hours16

Requirements for Departmental Honors in Mathematics: The Departmental Honors Program in Mathematics is designed for the superior student and is intended to help the student develop a more comprehensive view of the nature of mathematics. The program provides a vehicle for the recognition of the achievements of work beyond the usual course of study and earns the student the distinction “Mathematics Scholar Cum Laude” at graduation. Higher degree distinctions are recommended only in truly exceptional cases and are based upon the whole of the candidate’s program of honors studies.

Graduation with honors: The candidate must satisfy the requirements set forth by the Honors Council. The candidate must also obtain at least a 3.50 grade-point average in CSCE 2004 and all 2000-level or higher MATH/STAT courses required for the degree. In addition, a grade of “D” or “F” in any other course offered by the department disqualifies a student for honors.    

Candidates must take 2-4 hours of MATH 498V at least one semester before the student's graduating semester. This course will require significant progress toward an honors thesis to be presented and defended before the student’s honors committee. The quality of this paper and its defense, along with the execution of the rest of the student’s honors program and overall academic performance, will be used in determining the distinction between Honors and High Honors.

Mathematics (B.A. or B.S.) Teacher Licensure Requirements:

Please refer to the Secondary Education Requirements for Fulbright College Students.  Students wishing to pursue licensure through the Secondary undergraduate curriculum should consult with a Secondary STEM Education adviser, teach@uark.edu.

Students wanting to teach mathematics in middle school should consult with a middle level adviser in the College of Education and Health Professions.
