## Program Information

The above curriculum stresses courses that involve the construction, analysis, and evaluation of mathematical models of real-world problems and those areas of mathematics most widely used to solve them. Thus, it prepares students to deal with mathematical problems that arise in science, engineering, or management. Applied mathematics students enjoy considerable flexibility, but are urged to acquire a solid background in the three principal areas of applied mathematics, which are modeling, analysis or solution methods, and numerical analysis.

Students should note that the mathematics options listed above are any 4000-level or higher course from the Department of Mathematical Sciences at most one of which may be taken Pass/No Credit. (Students planning on graduate study are advised against using Pass/No Credit on mathematics options.) It is also recommended that students take PHYS 1100 and PHYS 1200.
