The applied mathematics major is intended primarily for students interested in applications of mathematics to other disciplines.
Admission Requirements for Mathematics Major and Minor
Admission to any major in the mathematics department will be considered after the first two quarters of calculus are taken (MATH 172 and MATH 173). Transfer students with the calculus background will generally take and successfully complete (2.0 or higher) 10 hours of math beyond calculus to be admitted to a major. Application forms are available from the mathematics department office. Students must meet with an advisor in the mathematics department before being considered for major or minor. In addition, students must earn a minimum grade of C in any course that fulfills a major or minor requirement.
Mathematics department-approved electives numbered 300 or higher including courses from departments that apply mathematics (such as biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, finance, geological science, mathematics or physics). No more than 2 credits in MATH 407 may be applied.
