Mathematics (Applied Mathematics) - Bachelor of Science

The Applied Mathematics concentration is intended to prepare students planning a mathematically oriented career upon graduation. The coursework in this concentration provides a foundation in mathematics important in many scientific and engineering applications.

Students must complete all University degree requirements, which include: General Education requirements, Viewing a Wider World requirements, and elective credits to total at least 120 credits with 48 credits in courses numbered 300 or above. Developmental coursework will not count towards the degree requirements and/or elective credits, but may be needed in order to take the necessary English and Mathematics coursework.

A Suggested Plan of Study for Students

This roadmap assumes student  placement in MATH 191G Calculus and Analytic Geometry I and ENGL 111G Rhetoric and Composition. The contents and order of this roadmap may vary depending on initial student placement in mathematics and english. It is only a suggested plan of study for students and is not intended as a contract. Course availability may vary from fall to spring semester and may be subject to modification or change.

Some students may be able to bypass one or more courses in the calculus sequence MATH 191G - MATH 192G - MATH 291G. The calculus sequence, Introduction to Higher Mathematics, and Linear Algebra provide knowledge that is basic to further work, and students are advised to complete them or their equivalent as early as possible.
