The mathematics major is available as either a Bachelor of Science or a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Letters and Science, or as a second major for students completing another UWM degree.

Each of these sample four-year plans shows just one possible pathway to earning a degree with a mathematics major in four years.

These plans do not replace the advice of your advisor, and students are cautioned to meet regularly with their advisor to create a personalized plan that matches their particular circumstances.

These plans also follow the degree requirements for students who began their UWM education in Fall of 2013 or later. If you started at UWM prior to Fall of 2013, your degree requirements may be different. And, this plan assumes that you have tested into college-level math and English classes but have not taken any foreign language during high school.

To clarify any degree requirements, please contact a Department Undergraduate Advisor.
