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

  • One of:
    • MATH 171 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry I *
    • MATH 169 -- Calculus I with Integrated Precalculus II*
  • MATH 172 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry II *
  • MATH 271 -- Calculus and Analytical Geometry III *
  • MATH 260 -- Introductory Linear Algebra**
  • 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
  • Six credits from the following
    • MATH 280 or any 300- or 400-level MATH or STAT course
    • Any ITEC course numbered 200 or above, with the exception of ITEC 200, 202, or 281
    • Any PHYS course numbered 300 or above
    • Any CHEM course numbered 200 or above
    • GEOS 250 or 380
    • Other courses approved by the department 
  • 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:

  • PHYS 222 -- Physics II
  • Three credits in 
    • Any PHYS course numbered 300 or above
    • Any astronomy course
    • Any biology course
    • Any chemistry course
    • Any geology course
    • GEOS 130 Physical Geography

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 MATH 171 (or 168 and 169), 172, and 271. Departmental majors receiving credit for MATH 271 cannot subsequently receive credit for any 100-level mathematics course unless the course is required for their concentration.

**--MATH 261 Linear Algebra Computer Lab is not specifically required for the 2020-21 catalog, but starting in 2021-22, it will be required and will become a prerequisite for MATH 434 Numerical Analysis I.
