Mathematics  Applied Mathematics Emphasis (B.S.)


Return to: All Programs at SUU
Program Summary
The Mathematics with Applied Math Emphasis major is designed to prepare students for graduate studies and employment in scientific, computational, and engineering fields. Applied mathematicians model physical phenomena and solve realworld problems using analytic methods and computational tools. To develop modeling and problemsolving skills, the program combines a core set of required mathematics courses with a variety of quantitative electives from physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer science.
Program Learning Outcomes
 Use standard mathematical techniques to solve computational problems.
 Demonstrate knowledge of fundamental mathematical concepts and results in the core content areas.
 Use content knowledge to solve applied and realworld mathematical problems.
 Communicate mathematics effectively using proper notation and terminology.
 Use logical reasoning to construct clear and concise mathematical proofs.
Program Information
 All courses to be counted in the major must be passed with a “C” (2.0) or better.
 Students seeking the Applied Mathematics emphasis are strongly encouraged to pursue a minor in Chemistry , Physics , or Computer Science .
Program Prerequisites
The Department of Mathematics strongly recommends that students complete the following courses as part of their General Education , as they are prerequisites for required major courses and/or requirements for graduation. Students who do not complete these courses as part of General Education can potentially add additional credits and time to their degree. These courses may or may not need to be taken before starting any major courses; consult a Student Success Advisor for details.
* Note: Students who are not prepared for this math course may need additional math credits/preparation. Please consult your Student Success Advisor for more information.
