In the Applied Mathematics program, students complete at least twelve mathematics courses and at least six approved courses in a Field of Application where significant applications of mathematics are possible. In consultation with an academic advisor, students may design an interdisciplinary Field of Application or may choose a Field of Application within a single academic discipline such as business, economics, education, environmental studies, fashion, graphic design, sociology, or sports science. Students will apply mathematics to their Field of Application in specific papers, projects, and courses.
