The Computational Mathematics Concentration prepares students both for graduate work in mathematics and careers in industry. It is similar to the Applied Mathematics Concentration; however, the course work in this concentration emphasizes the use of numerical methods in applied mathematics.

Effective Spring 2018

A minimum grade of C is required in all mathematics, statistics, and computer science courses that are required for graduation.

Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:
TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER:  The curriculum for the Major in Mathematics, Computational Mathematics Concentration assumes students enter college prepared to take calculus. Entering students who are not prepared to take calculus will need to fulfill pre‐calculus requirements in the first semester: MATH 117, MATH 118, MATH 124, MATH 125MATH 126. A minimum grade of C is required in all mathematics, statistics, and computer science courses that are required by the major.
