Pursuing the Study of Mathematics & Its Possibilities

With courses in mathematics, actuarial mathematics, math education, math in data science, and math for social interactions, we are ready to provide you with a rigorous degree while providing you with the support you need to succeed. Serving students concentrating in mathematics and those of other departments, we strive to continuously improve our teaching. We also work to further mathematics in the University of Michigan-Flint service region and are active members of the UM-Flint community.

Professional mathematicians go by many job titles, most of which don’t have “mathematician” in the title — analysts, consultants, statisticians, researchers, industrial scientists, etc. A degree in mathematics prepares students for a lifetime of occupational success by applying their deep reasoning skills, quantitative literacy, and scientific fluency in a vast slew of careers.

Mathematics Bachelor’s Degree Programs

Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Mathematics

Catalog Description
The Actuarial Science Program at the University of Michigan-Flint is designated an “Undergraduate-Introductory” actuarial science program by the Society of Actuaries. It is designed for the student who wishes to pursue a career as an actuary, a career that requires strong mathematical skills as well as training in business-related areas. Actuaries work for insurance companies, financial planning agencies, governmental agencies, and other organizations to assist them in planning for the future using statistical and other mathematical techniques. Actuaries advance in their careers by passing examinations offered by the two American actuarial societies, the Society of Actuaries and the Casualty Actuarial Society. The courses required for this degree cover much of the material on the first two examinations of these two organizations. It is often possible for students to take an examination prior to graduation.

Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics

Catalog Description
This program is designed for the student who wants to study mathematics in some depth as preparation for graduate school or a career in mathematics or a related field. It is recommended that the general education requirements be completed in the first two years.

“I actually didn’t like math for a long time. But when I got to what would have been my final math course at UM-Flint, I was kind of disappointed, so I switched my major. I have been able to get to know my professors so well. They’ve been very open to helping me with course content and even exploring topics we aren’t covering in class.” After graduating from UM-Flint, Joseph is now a Project Engineer with Empire Dynamics Machinery.
