The BS in Applied Mathematics Degree consists of a strong core of courses in applied advanced mathematics, statistics, and computational science. The structure of the program allows the student to choose between two broad areas of study that are, at their root, highly mathematical: (1) data analytics, and (2) natural sciences. The purpose of the program is to provide foundational and hands-on experience in applied problems associated with the two disciplines.
A graduate of the Bachelor of Science in the Applied Mathematics is prepared to:
Develop an expertise in problem-formation, problem solving, and modeling techniques and strategies central to a wide variety of applications;
Establish the ability to communicate analytic arguments clearly and concisely, in oral and written forms;
Exhibit expertise in numerical problem-solving techniques using high-level programming languages and commercial computational software packages; and,
Demonstrate foundational knowledge and skills within an interdisciplinary-work environment.
