Associate Professor John Matthews III, Head
The Department of Mathematics offers a B.S. in Mathematics, designed to examine the growing influence of mathematics in business and industrial practices. The student must select a concentration in one of the following three areas: actuarial science, general mathematics, or STEM Education for students who plan to teach at the secondary school level.
In addition to its own degree programs, the Department provides extensive support for other programs requiring mathematics courses such as Engineering, Business, the School of Education, and the natural sciences. The Department provides a wide variety of courses for the University’s General Education program and offers students the opportunity to minor in mathematics.
The UTC Department of Mathematics uses the Math ACT (or Math SAT) to assess the student’s pre-college preparation and to determine whether prerequisites for certain of the 1000 and 2000 level courses are met. For course prerequisites, Math ACT 19 = Math SAT 460, Math ACT 22 = Math SAT 520, Math ACT 26 = 590, and Math ACT 28 = Math SAT 630.
