This course of studies enables students to learn the mathematics that is currently useful in business and industry. An industrial mathematician uses and adopts the mathematics necessary to attack problems of practical concern. Because students of Applied Mathematics become familiar with the problems of science and engineering, and because they are encouraged to elect some courses in computer science and engineering as part of their program of studies, they will be attractive to firms offering employment oriented toward those fields.
Take 12 credits in Actuarial Science, Computer Science, Education, Statistics, or a pre-approved related area or approved self-designed set of courses. See an advisor for course requirements and further details.
A student may choose to do a minor in the above fields to substitute for the related area.
Additional Requirements 2 courses (3 credits)
Applied Mathematics majors take the following sequence of courses to fulfill the capstone course requirement:
