The science of mathematics is fundamental to many disciplines and an integral part of a liberal arts education. Quantitative skills such as data analysis, problem solving, pattern recognition and mathematical modeling are increasingly vital to contemporary professions. Entry-level mathematics courses introduce students to basic concepts and tools that are essential to education. Upper-level courses provide students with the opportunity to explore mathematical topics in greater depth.


There are four concentrations of study from which to select a Mathematics major: Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Mathematics with Teacher Licensure. The requirements for each of these programs are listed within the individual programs in the UNC Asheville Course Catalog.

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Pure Mathematics
  • Statistics
