The Major Programs

Mathematics is the study of abstract structures, space, change, and the interrelations of these concepts. It also is the language of the exact sciences.

The Program. Students majoring in mathematics may follow a program leading to either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree. After completing basic introductory courses such as calculus and linear algebra, students plan an upper division program in consultation with a faculty advisor. Upper division courses include real analysis, probability, modern algebra, as well as a variety of other courses that allow students to further mathematical knowledge and skills that feature their research or career interests. This individualized program can lead to graduate study in pure or applied mathematics, elementary or secondary level teaching, or to other professional goals. It can also reflect a special interest such as computational and applied mathematics, computer science, or statistics, or may be combined with a major in some other field.

Career Alternatives. A degree in mathematics provides entry to many careers in industry in addition to teaching. For instance, operations research, data analysis, systems analysis, computing, actuarial work, insurance, and financial services are only a few such careers. Mathematics is also a sound basis for graduate work in a variety of fields, such as law, engineering, and economics.

Recommended Language Preparation. Bachelor of Science degree candidates are advised, but not required, to satisfy the same language requirement as that for a Bachelor of Arts degree candidate, and to fulfill it in French, German, or Russian.

Major Advisors. For a current list of faculty and staff advisors; see https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/undergrad/advising/advisers/ or contact the Student Services office at studentservices@math.ucdavis.edu.

Depth Subject Matter Requirements. The upper division course offering is grouped into core and enrichment courses. The core classes are intended to provide basic mathematical techniques, whereas the enrichment choices allow students to further mathematical knowledge and skills that feature their research or career interests. Certain mathematically oriented courses given by other departments are admissible in partial satisfaction of the depth subject matter requirements with prior departmental approval. Before graduating, students also complete a mathematics capstone, which can be satisfied by completing an undergraduate thesis, an approved internship, or one of the approved capstone courses.

Statement of Objectives. As early as possible, but no later than the last quarter of the sophomore year or no later than the beginning of the first quarter of the junior year for transfer students, each prospective mathematics major, in consultation with an advisor, should file a formal program of study in one of the majors offered in mathematics. Forms to be used for this are available on OASIS (students.ucdavis.edu), our website or from the Department office. Failure to file a formal program could lead to a delay in graduation. 

Information for Undergraduates. Assistance in planning an undergraduate major program in mathematics is available on our website, as well as by consulting an advisor. Information about the Department's advisors can be found on our website, https://www.math.ucdavis.edu/undergrad/advising/advisers/.

Mathematics Placement Requirement. Students who wish to enroll in MAT 012, 016A, 017A, 021A, 021AH, and 021M must satisfy the mathematics placement requirement by taking an online exam. Students who do not satisfy the requirement will be administratively dropped from these courses. For more information, including preparation tips and how to access the online exam, please see the Department of Mathematics' website, at http://www.math.ucdavis.edu/undergrad/math_placement, well in advance of enrolling. 

Department Honors. Students who have completed at least 135 units with a minimum GPA of 3.500 in courses counted towards their major will be considered for Department Honors.

Students who meet the minimum GPA requirement for honors at graduation for the College of Letters and Science and who complete a senior project as part of MAT 194 or 199 units in consultation with their faculty adviser may also be recommended by the department for graduation with High Honors or Highest Honors. Recommendations will be based on evaluations of students' academic achievements in their major and the quality of their senior project.
