The applied mathematics B.S. program is directed toward a career goal for computer- and mathematics-related government, industrial, or business employment. It may also provide a basis for entry into graduate school in mathematics, applied mathematics, computer science, or other related disciplines.

Four years of college preparatory mathematics is recommended.

Students will:

1. master the subject matter, which includes mastery of mathematical ideas as well as techniques.

2. understand the nature of quantitative and qualitative reasoning.

3. master computer tools to experiment with mathematical concepts, implement mathematical models and analyze data.

4. communicate their mathematical ideas and results, both orally and in writing, with clarity and precision, to experts as well as to non-experts in the field.

5. be able to relate mathematical ideas and techniques to other disciplines.
