Pure Mathematics

Undergraduate Certificate

The undergraduate Certificate in Pure Mathematics provides non-math major students with the opportunity to enhance their career with a strong background in pure mathematics. In particular, the required courses leading to the certificate prepare students to pursue deeper study at graduate school.

As a student in the certificate program, you complete 15 hours of undergraduate credit in mathematics. You take upper-level, undergraduate pure mathematics courses that go beyond the level of Calculus I, II, and III.
