Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics
The applied mathematics comprehensive major is designed to prepare students for a variety of career options, depending on which secondary concentration is chosen. The program possibilities are: Applied Math – Physics, Applied Math – Chemistry, Applied Math – Biology, and Applied Math – Environmental Science. Graduates would then have the option of pursuing a graduate degree in applied math or the chosen concentration, or a field of engineering.
An applied mathematics major consists of a concentration in mathematics and a second concentration in one of the following: physics, biology, chemistry, or environmental science. It normally requires four years to complete. High school preparation should include pre-calculus or college algebra/trig and upper level science courses. Students learn to exhibit analytical thinking and problem solving skills, as well as specialized fields of scientific knowledge. There are three concentrations within the Applied Math major.
