Applied Mathematics, BS


Return to: Academic Programs Students majoring in Applied Mathematics must complete 40 credits in mathematics, distributed as follows. Since different program emphases are possible, students should consult the advisor as early as possible in regards to selection of courses:

Introductory theoretical course
Upperlevel required courses
One of the following courses
One of the following courses
Numerical Mathematics:
choose one of the following courses
Applied Analysis:
choose one of the following courses
Differential Equations:
choose one of the following courses
One of the following courses
Computer Science:
choose one of the following courses
Statistics:
choose one of the following courses
Other Requirements and Recommendations
 Students interested in graduate study are strongly advised to take MATH 1530  ADVANCED CALCULUS 1 and MATH 1540  ADVANCED CALCULUS 2 . These two courses may be substituted for the Applied Analysis and the Differential Equations courses, respectively.
 Students interested in pursuing secondary education certification should take the following courses in addition to the courses required for the major.
 A grade of C or higher is necessary in all courses required for the major. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in departmental courses is required for graduation.
 Students must complete at least one writingintensive course (Wcourse) in the major.
 No course that counts toward the major may be taken on the S/NC basis.
 Students must complete at least 12 credits in a related area. A minor in Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics, Physics, or Statistics would fulfill this requirement. Speak to the departmental advisor for more options or details.
 Honors in Applied Mathematics is granted if the student:
 Completes all requirements for the major
 Completes the following courses with a letter grade of B or higher:
 Completes an honors thesis under the direction of a member of the Department of Mathematics faculty, or completes a 2000level course in lieu of the honors thesis.
 The statistics requirement is waived for students seeking honors in Applied Mathematics.
