Applied Mathematics Major Revised: 10/2017 M athematics has been described as the Queen of the Sciences. Mathematics is the language of quantitative information and structure. Quantitative information is acquired, classified and processed according to mathematical models of physical phenomena with mathematical tools. There is a wide range of applications even of the most pure of mathematical disciplines. Cryptography is based on algebra, signal processing is based on Fourier analysis, and important applications have arisen from topology to physics. Our department offers unique research opportunities for undergraduates in mathematical biology, scientific computing, and finance mathematics as well as algebra, geometry, and analysis. T he Department of Mathematics offers an ample selection of courses leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics, applied mathematics, and actuarial mathematics as well as various courses for non-majors. We also offer the possibility of joint majors in mathematics-economics and mathematics-philosophy (see separate sheets for joint majors). Each of the department’s majors has its own philosophy and its own formal requirements. For additional information, visit the Department of Mathematics Web site. Required courses for the Applied Mathematics major The Applied Mathematics major requires the completion of 40 credits in mathematics distributed as follows. Calculus courses MATH 0220 Analytic Geometry and Calculus 1 MATH 0230 Analytic Geometry and Calculus 2 MATH 0240 Analytic Geometry and Calculus 3 Introductory theoretical courses
