The Department of Mathematics provides support not only its own majors and programs but also other programs requiring mathematics courses such as engineering, business, and the natural sciences. The department also provides a wide variety of courses for the University's General Education Program.
With this in mind, the Math Department provides assistance for students of all disciplines in order to complete their degrees at UTC. Our majors and graduate students are assigned advisors within the Math Department in order to help them navigate the degree requirements needed to graduate.
The Department of Mathematics at UTC is committed to educational excellence at both the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels. Students who study here are exposed to both fundamental and emerging topics across the field of mathematics.
