The Department of Mathematics at the University of New Orleans (UNO) offers an undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree. The program is designed to provide a sound preparation for graduate study as well as prepare students for careers in business, government, industry, and teaching. The Mathematics Department offers a wide variety of courses which include the standard introductory courses in algebra, trigonometry and calculus, as well as advanced courses in algebra, calculus, complex analysis, ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, statistics, numerical analysis, topology, finite and boundary element method, Fourier analysis, graph theory, number theory, optimization, and combinatorics. The student has the choice of which of the following four areas of mathematics he/she wishes to concentrate in:
The Department of Mathematics has many computational resources available to students. Our computer classroom/lab has been used for courses at all levels, from elementary calculus to advanced dynamics, finite element analysis and statistics. Our software library includes TeX, Mathematica, ANSYS and numerous specialized mathematical applications and packages. We also have statistical software such as SAS and S-Plus as well as Java and C language capabilities.
Admission to undergraduate study in mathematics will be determined by the Office of Admissions, the College of Sciences and the Department of Mathematics.
All entering freshman and some transfer students must take the UNO English placement test to determine which courses that may take at UNO. ACT scores are used for initial Mathematics placement. The UNO Mathematics Placement Exam is offered to students who want to bypass College Algebra and Trigonometry. Mathematics majors who are admitted to the program but who are not prepared to take calculus must take College Algebra and Trigonometry without credit toward graduation.

The Department of Mathematics at the University of New Orleans (UNO) offers an undergraduate program leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree. The program is designed to provide a sound preparation for graduate study as well as prepare students for careers in business, government, industry, and teaching. See our checklist for the requirements to get a degree in mathematics.
Concentrations are chosen by selecting a department which offers classes with significant mathematical content and taking 12 hours of courses numbered 2000 or above from that department. See the Mathematics Department homepage for our new signature concentrations. Other examples include Accounting, Computer Science, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Curriculum and Instruction, and many more.
An honors program is available to mathematics majors. Successful completion of the program will result in graduation with Honors in Mathematics. To be eligible for admission to the program a student must have a 3.25 overall average and a 3.5 in mathematics (including an average of 3.5 in mathematics courses numbered 2000 or above). To remain in the program the student must maintain these averages. Before graduation, the student must complete Mathematics 4411 and six credit hours of Mathematics 3099, including an oral defense of the honors thesis to a committee composed of the faculty thesis director, another faculty member chosen by the departmental chairman, and a representative of the Honors program.
An undergraduate minor in mathematics may be obtained by completing at least 18 credit hours of mathematics courses at the 2000-level or higher with a grade of C or better in each course. 6 of the hours shall be at or above the 3000 level. At least nine credit hours must be taken at UNO.
An undergraduate minor in actuarial mathematics may be obtained by completing at least 18 credit hours in mathematics including Mathematics 2314, 4801, and 4802 with a grade of C or better in each course. At least nine credit hours must be taken at UNO.
An undergraduate minor in industrial and applied mathematics may be obtained by completing at least 18 credit hours including mathematics 2115, 2221, and 2511with a grade of C or better in each course. At least nine credit hours must be taken at UNO.
An undergraduate minor in statistics may be earned by completing 18 credit hours in mathematics including Mathematics 4301, and 4304 with a grade of C or better in each course. At least nine credit hours must be taken at UNO.
