Major Code: 7079

Degree Awarded: Bachelor of Science
Delivery Mode(s): Classroom Admission Status: Undergraduate
Location(s): Main Campus - Melbourne  

The bachelor’s program in applied mathematics prepares undergraduate students for industry and for well-recognized graduate programs in applied mathematics or related areas. The major covers core topics that provide a rigorous mathematical background involving mathematical techniques and ways of thinking that can be used in a wide variety of careers. During the first two years, applied mathematics majors share courses with science and engineering majors, enabling dual degree opportunities for students. The program provides an opportunity to choose concentrations in areas of interest that include applications to data sciences, computational mathematics and biomathematics. 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. 


Electives (48 credit hours)

  • Applied area credit hours: 12
  • Humanities elective (HU 3000-level or higher recommended) credit hours: 3
  • Restricted electives (MTH 3000-level or higher) credit hours: 9 from the following list
  • (The list will be expanded periodically.) 

  • Social science credit hours: 3
  • Technical electives credit hours: 9
  • 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.

Total Credits Required: 124
