The Applied Mathematics Concentration is structured around the premise that Mathematics is a useful tool in many academic areas. Students in this program are required to take upper-level courses in a second discipline of their choosing, and are encouraged to explore the connections between mathematics and this second discipline. By developing expertise in two areas, students will increase their options for future studies and employment after they graduate.
I. Required courses in the major—39-40 hours, including:
And at least 15 hours, to include 9 hours at the 300-400 level
These courses must be from a discipline in which mathematical applications are important and must be approved by the department chair.
III. Other departmental requirements:
Satisfactory performance on a comprehensive Mathematics exam and the satisfactory presentation of one seminar in MATH 480. Successful completion of MATH 480 demonstrates oral competency. Successful completion of CSCI 182 or 183 demonstrates computer competency.
