During the first two years, applied mathematics majors share many courses with other students. The applied mathematics major includes courses with extensive theoretical content, as well as applied courses from related departments, to meet the needs of students in the 21st century. Students can choose electives that will enable them to apply mathematics to engineering, the physical sciences, biological sciences, environmental studies, social sciences and business applications. Mathematics graduates who have successfully completed the program are prepared to pursue graduate work or take their place in industry along with engineers and scientists.

Elective Restrictions

Choices of electives are subject to approval by the student's advisor. Mathematics electives must include at least one proof-based course in addition to the required courses in discrete mathematics and analysis. Examples of suitable courses include Introduction to Combinatorics and Graph Theory (MTH 3051), Number Theory (MTH 3401), Abstract Algebra (MTH 4051), Topology (MTH 4105) and Advanced Geometry (MTH 4801).

Applied area electives must be taken from a single area of application. Typically, this means from a single department or program other than mathematics. Any science or engineering program can be chosen. Suitably chosen management courses (courses with mathematics prerequisites) can also be taken. At least 30 elective credits must be at the 3000-level (or higher).
