### Major Requirements

The department strongly recommends that students pursuing a major or a minor in applied mathematics complete COSC 101Ìý²¹²Ô»åÌýCOSC 101LÌý´Ç°ù equivalent.

The requirements for the major are as follows:

#### Preparatory Courses

- MATH 161Â -Â Calculus I or equivalent experience approved by department chair
- MATH 162Â -Â Calculus II or equivalent experience approved by department chair

#### Required Courses

In unusual circumstances, the deadlines indicated may be extended with departmental approval through student petition to the department chair.

- MATH 163Â -Â Calculus III (completed by the end of the sophomore year)
- MATH 214Â -Â Linear Algebra (completed by the end of the sophomore year)
- MATH 260Â -Â Computational Mathematics and MATH 260LÂ (completed by the end of the sophomore year with a grade of C or better)
- MATH 376Â -Â Numerical Analysis (completed by the end of the junior year)
- MATH 377Â -Â Real Analysis I (completed by the end of the junior year)
- To complete the major, each student must produce a thesis. This is normally done through MATH 481Ìý´Ç°ù MATH 482. Note: Joint theses are allowed but will not normally be considered for honors. Exceptions may be made with departmental permission.

#### Elective Courses

One elective from 200-level or above and two electives from 300-level or above. (Note that all three electives may be 300-level or above.)

Electives may be chosen from the following:

- MATH 240Â -Â Computational Statistics with R
- MATH 250Â -Â Number Theory and Mathematical Reasoning
- MATH 302Â -Â Systems Biology
- MATH 308Â -Â Differential Equations
- MATH 310Â -Â Combinatorial Problem Solving
- MATH 312Â -Â Math Modeling: Social Sciences
- MATH 313Â -Â Functions of a Complex Variable
- MATH 315Â -Â Mathematical Biology
- MATH 316Â -Â Probability
- MATH 354Â -Â Data Analysis I - Applied Linear Models
- MATH 360Â -Â Graph Theory
- MATH 408Â -Â Partial Differential Equations
- MATH 416Â -Â Mathematical Statistics
- MATH 417Â -Â Brownian Motion & Stochastic Calculus
- MATH 448Â -Â Nonlinear Dynamics & Chaos
- MATH 454Â -Â Data Analysis II - Nonlinear Model Inference
- MATH 460Â -Â Hilbert and Banach Spaces
- MATH 487Â -Â Real Analysis II

#### Cognate Courses

Two cognate courses representing a field of application interest outside of Mathematics. These two courses â€¨must count toward a single major in the Natural or Social Sciences preferably taken in two sequential semesters as the intent is to provide an immersive experience with the language, culture, questions, and ways of knowing of another field. The courses need not explicitly use mathematics, rather they provide a basis for communication with experts in that field. Normally, the seniorÂ project involves a topic related to this field of application.

#### GPA Requirement

A minimum GPA of 2.00 in the courses chosen to meet the major requirements is necessary to satisfy the major.

#### Honors and High Honors

Students interested in pursuing honors can find the additional requirements on the MathematicsÂ department page.
