# Applied Mathematics Program Requirements

The B.S. in Applied Mathematics, which requires a minimum of 39 credit hours of mathematics, is recommended for students interested in scientific applications or further study in mathematics on the graduate level. A grade of C or better must be achieved in all MATH and COSC courses.

##### Core Courses

All Applied Mathematics majors must take the** core courses** in the list below.

- MATH 115: Calculus I (4 cr)
- MATH 116: Calculus II (4 cr)

- MATH 415W: Real Analysis I (3 cr)

**Computer Programming Requirement:** All Applied Mathematics majors must take a 3-credit programming course chosen from one of the following:

- COSC 150: Scientific Programming: C++ (note: does not count toward Computer Science major/minor)
- COSC 160: Scientific Programming: Java
- COSC 170: Scientific Programming: Python

##### Electives

In addition to the core courses above, the remaining 12 or more credit hours of MATH courses must be at the 300-level or above and must include:

- Applications component: At least two courses chosen from
- MATH 302W: Probability and Statistics II (3 cr)

- MATH 420: Introduction to Complex Variables (3 cr) (recommended)
- MATH 423W: Topology (3 cr)
- Applied Mathematics Capstone (3 cr)

Technical and Applied Electives coursework: 9 credits, with at least 3 credits of Technical Electives and at least 3 credits of Applied Electives.

- Technical Electives include any MATH or COSC course at the 300 level or above.
- Applied Electives include any BIOL, CHEM, PHYS, BMED, ECON, FINC, ISYS, or MKTG course at the 300 level or above.

##### Additional Coursework

The B.S. major must also adhere the college core for the Bachelor of Science.
