Applied Mathematics is the study of mathematics that is often used in other technical disciplines such as chemistry, biology, engineering, physics, economics and computer science.
- Develop effective thinking and communication skills
- Learn to link applications and theory
- Learn to use technological tools
- Develop mathematical independence and experience open-ended inquiry
Students who complete the concentration in applied mathematics will have a strong mathematical background and an emphasis in a second field, and will be able to integrate the mathematics within that field.
The concentration in applied mathematics is comprised of at least 57 credit hours in three main areas: mathematics courses, non-math courses and a minor in another department.
Required Minor in Another Department
A core aspect in applied math is knowledge of another field. The student must also minor in one of the following areas: computer science, psychology, biology, chemistry, economics, geography/earth science or a minor approved by the Mathematics Department. Note: Many of the courses in the minor can be counted toward the liberal arts and sciences (LA&S) courses.
