The Applied Mathematics concentration prepares students for careers as applied mathematicians working in business, government, and industry. It is recommended that students supplement the core mathematical program with courses in their chosen application area; for example, engineering, public health, finance, electronics, or geology. Course requirements emphasize mathematical foundations as well as the application of mathematics in other disciplines. In particular, students receive training in numerical analysis, mathematical modeling, statistics, and computing, as well as a solid preparation for further study.

Distinctive Requirements for Degree Program:
TO PREPARE FOR FIRST SEMESTER: The curriculum for the Major in Mathematics, Applied 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 125, MATH 126. A minimum grade of C is required in all Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science courses that are required by the major.
