The Applied Mathematics option is designed to prepare students for the wide variety of jobs available in government, business, and industry. This track emphasizes breadth across science and engineering courses related to mathematics. This option encourages a strong background in computational and applied mathematics. The student selects an area of application for in-depth study and a senior project.
The applied math track leads to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree; there is no option availble for a Bachelor of Arts degree. See the degree plans for specifics. You can also look at a list of upper-division math courses.
If you intend to pursue an advanced degree, it is strongly recommended that your undergraduate degree program include Advanced Calculus I (MATH 4143), Advanced Calculus II (MATH 4153), Modern Algebra I (MATH 4613), and Modern Algebra II (MATH 5013).
