Applied Mathematics Concentration

The Applied Mathematics Concentration is intended for students aiming for careers in business and industry. It would also prepare a student for graduate school in math.

In addition to the Core Curriculum, students in the Applied Mathematics Concentration must take

  • MATH 151 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry I *
  • MATH 152 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry II *
  • MATH 251 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry III *
  • MATH 252 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry IV *
  • MATH 260 -- Introductory Linear Algebra
  • MATH 280 -- Problem Solving
  • MATH 300 -- Mathematical Foundations
  • MATH 346 -- Differential Equations
  • MATH 430 -- Advanced Calculus I
  • MATH 431 -- Advanced Calculus II
  • MATH 434 -- Numerical Analysis I
  • MATH 435 -- Numerical Analysis II
  • STAT 301 -- Probablility and Statistics I
  • STAT 302 -- Probablility and Statistics II
  • ENGL 306 -- Professional Writing
  • PHYS 221 -- Physics I
  • PHYS 222 -- Physics II
  • One of the following
    • ITEC 109 -- Problem Solving and Programming
    • ITEC 120 -- Principles of Computer Science I

Majors in the Applied Mathematics Concentration seeking a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree must choose three credit hours from the following:

  • Any 300- or 400-level math course with the exception of MATH 325
  • Any 300- or 400-level statistics course
  • ITEC 122 or any ITEC course numbered 200 or above with the exception of ITEC 202, ITEC 250, or ITEC 281
  • Any physics course numbered 300 or above
  • Any chemistry course numbered 200 or above

Majors in the Applied Mathematics Concentration seeking a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics degree must complete the B.A. language requirement.

Majors in the Applied Mathematics Concentration must have a 2.0 GPA in all required MATH, STAT, ITEC, and PHYS courses.

*--A grade of at least a C is required in courses in the Calculus sequence. Departmental majors receiving credit for MATH 252 cannot subsequently receive credit for any 100-level mathematics course unless the course is required for their concentration.
