# Degree Programs

At the undergraduate level, the UH Math Department offers B.S. and B.A. degrees in Mathematics. There are two additional options:

- Within the B.S. degree there is also an Option in Mathematical Finance that can be obtained through additional coursework.
- Within each of the B.S. and B.A. degrees, it is possible to also get a
**High School Teaching Certification**by participating in teachHOUSTON and taking additional courses.

Furthermore, there is a B.S. degree in Mathematical Biology that is jointly administered by the Mathematics Department and the Department of Biology & Biochemistry.

**Please keep in mind that it is the student's responsibility to be aware of all courses required for the chosen degree.** It is encouraged for students to speak to the Major Advisor at least once a year or more to ensure that the correct courses are taken. Also, students are responsible for knowing which catalog year they are in. This can be confirmed by speaking to the appropriate UAC Advisor.
