Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics
Rutgers-Camden offers a number of comprehensive undergraduate degree programs in the mathematical sciences:
This program is appropriate for students seeking a well-rounded curriculum that will give them a strong foundation for other advanced degrees in mathematics or further professional training, but especially for students interested in discovering what mathematical research means, and how findings in mathematics guide and support the rest of the sciences.
- Applied and Computational Mathematics
This program is for students whose interests may lie in the intersection between mathematics, computer science, and other subjects in the STEM discipline, where the latest developments in technology may be considered as opening doorways to solving challenging computational problems. This program suits students who want to pursue a graduate degree in applied fields or pick up competitive knowledge and skills for use in the workforce.
- Applied and Computational Mathematics–Data Science Track
From banking to social media to public services, companies in every sector now routinely use artificial intelligence (AI) and “big data” to create models and make predictions in order to maximize their resources and be as efficient as possible. This program is for students interested in making a career out of using mathematical techniques to effectively analyze data.
- Applied and Computational Mathematics–Biomathematics Track
As computational power improves and techniques in biology become more sophisticated than ever, scientists with strong mathematical backgrounds are needed more than ever. This program is for students interested in developing the tools needed to be on the frontlines of understanding the mathematics behind breakthroughs in medicine, genetics, neuroscience, and a host of other life sciences.
- Mathematics–Teaching Track
None of the above mathematical and scientific enterprises can proceed without the presence of knowledgeable, passionate, and effective teachers who will lead, educate, and inspire the next generation. Together with the accelerated Master of Arts in Teaching program, this selection of courses will enable students to obtain New Jersey instructional certificates to teach secondary school mathematics in five years.

Minors in Mathematics and Statistics
The Department of Mathematical Science offers minor programs in mathematics and statistics:
A minor in mathematics consists of a minimum of 18 credits of work with grades of C or better. At least 6 credits must be at the 300 level or above, and at least 3 additional credits must be at the 200 level or above. The three required courses are: Calc I (640:121)/Active Calc I (640:123), Calc II (640:122)/Active Calc II (640:124), and Introduction to Linear Algebra (640:250)/Linear Algebra with Applications (640:253). The following courses are recommended: Calc III (640:221), Elementary Differential Equations (640:314), Mathematical Reasoning with Proofs (640:300), and Probability and Stochastic Processes (640:331).
A minor in statistics consists of a minimum of 18 credits of work with grades of C or better, with at least 4 courses in statistics. At least 6 credits must be at the 300 level or above, and at least 3 additional credits must be at the 200 level or above. Two math courses are required: Calc I (640:121)/Active Calc I (640:123)/Calc for Business (640:118) and Introduction to Linear Algebra (640:250)/Linear Algebra with Applications (640:253). The following statistics courses are recommended: Introduction to Data Science (960:185), Introduction to Statistics I (960:283), Introduction to Statistics II (960:284), Probability and Stochastic Processes (640:331), Mathematical Statistics (960:481), and Statistical Models (960:489).This program is for students with an interest in mathematics and computer science and in the overlapping disciplines of biology, chemistry, engineering, and physics.
How to Apply
To apply for mathematics undergraduate programs, please visit the Rutgers-Camden Admissions website.
Use the undergraduate admissions application to apply as a first-year student if you have never attended college as a matriculated (degree-seeking) student. A first-year applicant may be a current high school student or an adult who has taken 12 or fewer college credits.
Use the undergraduate admissions application to apply as a transfer student if you have already graduated from high school and will have earned at least 12 college credits before your expected start at Rutgers–Camden.
