Computational and Applied Mathematics

The Departments of Computer Science, Mathematics, and Statistics offer a B.S. in Computational and Applied Mathematics. This program is designed not only for students who intend to specialize in computational or applied mathematics, but also students who want to acquire a strong quantitative background to be applied in such varied areas as physics, biological sciences, engineering, operations research, economics, and finance. To complete the major, students will propose a coherent set of three courses that will constitute their specialization. This self-designed specialization can be constructed, for instance, as preparation for a Ph.D. program in applied mathematics, scientific computing, machine learning, operations research, economics and finance, physical sciences, or biological sciences.
