The department offers two majors: mathematics and computer science, both leading to the bachelor of science degree. Students planning to earn an Alabama teacher’s certificate in mathematics should consult the department chair as well as consult the Department of Teacher Education  section of this catalog.

The department also offers three minors: mathematics, computer science, and an interdisciplinary minor in bioinformatics, offered in cooperation with the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences . The bioinformatics minor is available in three variations, depending on the student’s major: one for biology or biochemistry majors, one for computer science majors, and one for majors in other disciplines.
*See the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences  for program requirements for the bioinformatics minor for biology and biochemistry majors.
