362+485, 64/8, 7*12. Who needs a calculator when you’re a natural math whiz? Are you an ace with math and able to easily teach it to others? Can you read the story behind the numbers and apply them to practical real-life situations? If this describes you, then you may have just solved the problem of what your college major will be.
UTSA’s Mathematics Program
At UTSA you can earn a B.S. in Mathematics with a concentration in either Mathematics or General Mathematical Studies. The Mathematics concentration will teach you how to provide technical support and conduct research for high-technology industries, government and private companies. The General Mathematical Studies concentration will help you obtain a state certification to teach mathematics in either middle and high school. Both concentrations will teach you how to apply theories and techniques to solve practical problems and can serve as a stepping stone to graduate school and becoming a professional mathematician. Concentrations are declared after you’ve been admitted and have met with your academic advisor.
UTSA’s University Career Center offers several resources to help students identify and develop the global skills necessary to successfully pursue and achieve lifelong career goals.
