Department of Mathematics Page 3 WHY SHOULD YOU MAJOR IN MATH? There are a number of important benefits associated with being a mathematics major at TAMU: Flexible Degree Plans - Our degree plans offer more elective hours and flexibility than any other degree plan on campus. The requirements and options for each plan are listed in this handbook, and each plan requires 120 credit hours. Honors Opportunities in Math – Honors majors are encouraged to take special courses, may be honors mentors, may earn an MS and BS in 5 years, and have extra opportunities to advance their career goals. Earning the Honors in Mathematics distinction makes the student more attractive to future employers and graduate schools. Job Opportunities - Almost all of our majors have jobs prior to graduation. Currently, 50% of our majors plan to work in industry, 20% plan to attend graduate school, and 30% plan to teach. Graduate School Opportunities - The variety of graduate school choices available to mathematics majors is perhaps the largest amongst all majors on campus. Small Class Size - Typical mathematics courses have an enrollment of 40 or less during the freshman year, and 30 or less in subsequent years. The overall student to professor ratio in the Math Department is extremely small, offering small classroom settings to its undergraduate majors. This also results in ample opportunities for students interested in undergraduate research projects. Study Lounge - The Undergraduate Program Office is very fortunate to have one of the few undergraduate study lounges on campus. Math majors have access to this lounge 24 hours a day. Use the code: 31425 to access the lounge after regular working hours. On any given day, it is typical to find students working on assignments, using one of the computer terminals, eating lunch or simply hanging out in between classes. This lounge provides a relaxed environment for our majors to study or escape from the stress of their day. Friendly and Helpful Advisors - The advisors make it a point to know each student. They are always willing to help with any questions you might have relating to your degree and classes.
