Applied Mathematics, B.Sc.
- Applied Mathematics, B.Sc.
- Duration : 4 years
The BS program in applied mathematics offered by the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts is a transdisciplinary program focused on developing flexible problem-solvers who can apply mathematical techniques and skills to a wide range of problems in the biological and physical sciences. The course work builds a foundation in mathematical modeling, data analysis and the interpretation of mathematical results in real-world settings. Students choose science electives in applied biology, applied physics or other areas of interest to complement and provide context for their mathematical training.
From the GPS navigation system that maps a destination within seconds to the text you send on your cell phone, inventions from applied science abound and have permanently changed society. Applied science is basically putting scientific knowledge to practical use. Graduates of associate degree programs in applied science find jobs as technicians, drafters and engineers. They also land jobs in health care as therapists and technicians.
Career Opportunities Students in this program will be prepared to apply their analytic skills and technical knowledge to problems in a range of careers in industry, government, education or nonprofit organizations. They also may pursue advanced degrees in the mathematical sciences (e.g., mathematics, statistics and applied mathematics such as in mathematical biology).
