Applied and Computational Mathematics Curriculum


For the bachelor of science in mathematics, a student must:

  • Take all of the courses listed in the applied and computational mathematics curriculum checklist;
  • Take 3 emphasis area courses (information about emphasis areas and supporting courses is available from the department); and
  • Have a departmental grade point average of at least 2.00 in all mathematics courses 300 level or higher.
  • All baccalaureate degrees must satisfy the general education requirements mandated by the Board of Regents. Please see the General Education Requirements  in this catalog.
  • Course requirements for the program also include the total number of credits per course. Any student that transfers a course that is approved for transfer will fulfill the course requirement, but if the transferred course does not meet the total credit hour requirement then the program committee will decide on the proper accommodation for meeting the credit requirement. Students should consult with their advisor to get clarification on the necessary accommodation.

Curriculum Notes


1  The science requirement for this major consists of PHYS 211/211A , PHYS 213/213-A , one course from among BIOL 151 , CHEM 112 , GEOL 201 , plus a lab associated with one of the science courses taken - either BIOL 151L , CHEM 112L , GEOL 201L , or PHYS 213L .

2  Fulfills General Education requirement. Students should consult the “General Education Requiements ” section of this catalog for a complete listing of all general education requirements. Math majors are additionally required to take a total of at least 15 semester hours of electives in humanities and social sciences.  At least three credits of humanities/social sciences must be at the 300 level or above.

3  Math majors must complete at least 9 credits in coursework in a science or engineering emphasis area. Any dual or double major automatically satisfies this emphasis area requirement with their other major. Further information about possible emphasis areas is available from the department. Math majors are also required to complete at least three credits in a nontechnical elective. Nontechnical elective courses include: PE, Music, MSL, Humanities, or Social Sciences. Please note the nontechnical elective is in addition to the 15 credits of Humanities and Social Sciences that are required for the major.

CHEM 106 CSC 105 , MATH 021 , MATH 101 , MATH 114 , MATH 120 , PHYS 111 , and PHYS 113  may not be counted towards the degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics.
