The Mathematics program at Alabama A&M University offers a B.S. in Mathematics, a Minor in Mathematics, and a Minor in Applied Statistics. Students enrolled in in the B.S. in Mathematics program must complete a minor of their choosing, successfully complete the Senior Project (MTH 481), and the program exit assessment.

At this time, the program consists of about 27 mathematics faculty with research specialities in both pure and applied mathematics. Students are strongly encouraged to conduct research with a faculty member. Many math students also pursue summer internships (including Research Experiences for Undergraduates) and cooperative education experiences.
