# Undergraduate: The Programs

## Undergraduate Programs and Plans of Study

In a degree in Mathematics or Statistics students learn:

- Analytical Thinking: The ability to analyze complex problems and derive meaningful insights
- Problem Solving: Logical reasoning, Algorithmic thinking, Pattern recognition, Quantitative analysis, Modeling, Optimization techniques
- Life Skills: Resilience, Analytical Skills lead to a deeper understanding of the world.

These skills

- are in high demand in the job market.
- are bridges to interdisciplinary collaboration

Our department offers B.A. and B.S. programs in Mathematics and (starting fall 2024) Statistics as well as minors in mathematics and statistics.

The **B.A. in Mathematics** allows students to specialize in mathematics and at the same time either to follow a broad liberal arts program or to specialize in a second area (possibly even taking a second major).

The **B.S. in Statistics** prepares for a career in Data Analytics which is becoming more and more vital in all fields of study. Formal training as a Statistics major provides excellent employment opportunities and also prepares students for graduate degrees in statistics and data analysis at UNCG and other institutions.

The Accelerated B.A. or B.S. to M.A. program allows students to complete a bachelor’s degree (B.A. or B.S.) and a Masters of Science in Applied Statistics in as little as five years.

Below you can find graduation plans for our degree programs. These help you map out the courses that you will take each semester and also to graduate in a timely manner.

### Mathematics BS

- Four year plan of study for the Mathematics BS (formerly Mathematics BS with Advanced Mathematics Concentration)
- For the four year plan of study for the Mathematics BS with Statistics concentration see the plan of study for the Statistic BS below

### Statistics BS

### Mathematics BA

- Four year plan of study for the Mathematics BA with General Mathematics concentration
- Four year plan of study for the Mathematics BA with Statistics concentration
- Four Year plan of study for the Mathematics BA with Health Informatics concentration
- Mathematics BA flyer

The following two plans give only the mathematics and statistics courses, in a **two year schedule**. This is in particular interesting for **second degree students** but is also helpful for students with a Mathematics as a second or double major.
