The bachelor’s program in applied mathematics prepares undergraduate students for industry and well-recognized graduate programs in applied mathematics or related areas. During the first two years, applied mathematics majors share courses with science and engineering majors, enabling dual degree opportunities for students. The program includes courses with extensive theoretical and/or computational content. Students can choose electives in engineering, the physical sciences, biological sciences, environmental studies, social sciences and business. Applied mathematics students are provided a solid mathematics background and analytical and computational skills required to create new mathematical methods and tools for the solution of complex real-world problems and prepare them for the STEM workforce in industry and academia.
Humanities Elective (HU) 3000-level or higher recommended Credit Hours: 3
Restricted Electives (MTH 3000-level or higher) Credit Hours: 12
Social Science Credit Hours: 3
Technical Electives Credit Hours: 12
Technical area elective must be math, computer science, engineering or science course involving technology.
Applied area electives must be taken from a single area of application. Typically, this means from a single department or program other than mathematics. Any science or engineering program can be chosen. Suitably chosen management courses (courses with mathematics prerequisites) can also be taken. At least 30 elective credits must be at the 3000-level (or higher).
Note: Upper-division mathematics courses may be offered in alternate years.
