Declaring a Math Major or Minor

Math Major

You officially declare a major in Mathematics by contacting the Math Center to schedule an appointment with the Undergraduate Program Coordinator/Advisor.

When you meet with the Undergraduate Program Coordinator/Advisor, you will get general information and advising about the various tracks of the major. The Math Center also assigns faculty advisors to students for more personalized in-depth advising, once students have progressed in the major. In addition, you may want to ask for information about opportunities for math majors to get involved in research experiences, internships, campus activities (including the MathCats), and career exploration.

Please note:  it takes time to go over the major and degree requirements, and walk-in hours are not sufficient for this purpose.  Please schedule an appointment if you wish to declare the math major.

Math Minor

To officially declare a minor in Mathematics or in Mathematics Teaching, submit your request to the Math Center (you can also email us directly at; please include your ID number and send your request from your official UA email account).

Your major advisor can also add the math minor for you. Degree requirements for a minor may be found on our online Undergraduate Program Requirements page.
