Detailed information about the Mathematics major can be found in the UCI Catalog, which should be consulted before making any course planning decisions. Here we merely present an overview.

The Department of Mathematics offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. Within this degree program there are available seven different tracks:

  • The Mathematics (pure) major

  • The Concentration in Data Science

  • The Concentration in Mathematical Finance

  • The Specialization in Applied and Computational Mathematics

  • The Specialization in Mathematical Biology

  • The Specialization in Mathematics for Education

  • The Concentration in Mathematics for Education/Secondary Teaching Certification

A concentration involves interdisciplinary study; a specialization designates a focus within the departmental major. Both are noted on the student's transcript, but not on the diploma. 

An interview with a faculty advisor is required.

The lower-division requirements are essentially the same for all the tracks.
