A B.S. in Mathematics with a concentration in Applied Math prepares students for careers at the intersection of Mathematics with Science or Engineering. One feature of this program of study is the “Related Areas” requirement; students take several courses in a scientific discipline of their choice as part of their Math major. Course-wise, this concentration is similar to General Math but replaces several credits of upper-division Math courses with specific requirements typically necessary for interdisciplinary work. Requirements for this concentration are listed on the Applied Mathematics Checksheet. The major completion map provides a sample 4-year plan for graduation.
Sample career paths: A concentration in applied math leads to wide variety of careers, including data analysis, software engineering, information technology, and industry research. This concentration also prepares students for graduate school work in applied mathematics or related fields.
