B.S. in Applied Mathematics

The Applied Mathematics major provides students with a strong foundation in traditional mathematics, but it is also interdisciplinary in nature, addressing the needs of students interested in scientific or operational applications of mathematical techniques. Such applications can be found in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, computer science, finance, actuarial science, operations research, industrial mathematics, manufacturing, and many others. These applications require an understanding of the appropriate field, so students are expected to choose one of four subfields outside of mathematics in which to specialize.

In addition, we recognize our responsibilities to the community we serve, and strive to provide opportunity for continuing education at many levels through certificate programs and undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Sensitivity to the non-traditional student is reflected in our scheduling and mode of delivery, as well as the content of our courses.

The Mathematics Department is strongly committed to maintaining a quality program consistent with the overall mission of the College and the ever-changing demands of the profession.
