At the University of Wyoming, the College of Arts and Sciences is a leader in creating academic degree programs to meet special needs and interests of students seeking a unique place in the world beyond the university. In professional environments that appreciate intelligence, imagination, independence, and ingenuity, students may find valued positions by earning a bachelor's degree in one of the A&S Distributed majors (Humanities and Fine Arts, Social Sciences, Mathematics and Sciences) or the Self-Designed Major. These programs meet the complex curricular interests of those who may not achieve their professional desires and goals through study in a single discipline.
Students with broad, general interests in the organization, analysis, and application of measurement (mathematics, statistics) or the sciences, or both, may be interested in the Mathematics/Sciences major. The degree in Mathematics/Sciences is organized as a multidisciplinary program with a list of appropriate courses approved by participating departments and programs. For this major, students select four core areas of focus and plan a course of study to prepare for a variety of professional and career interests.
For this major, for example, if you focus your study in courses from geology, botany, and geography and learn about interrelationships of these fields to understand environmental issues, you may want to learn how to use statistics or mathematics to formulate, analyze, and interpret data to support solutions to those issues. With this degree, you may find employment in scientific industries or in local, state, or federal government, or as a technical writer.
Students in this major must complete the University Studies Program requirements and A&S core requirements, as well as major content for those who began fall 2015 or later. See this list of approved courses.
The academic advisor for students majoring in Mathematics/Sciences is Michell Anderson, College of Arts and Sciences, 307-766-2641, A&S Building, Room 152.
