Applied Mathematics, B.S. Degree (BSAM)

Overview of the Bachelor Science in Applied Math Degree Program

This is a degree program in which students are required to complete coursework and two Co-Op/Internship positions.  The program is flexible: it can completed in three or four years.   The problem solving skills that the Applied Math major develops will apply across disciplines. And with two co-op positions completed, graduates will have shown that they are job-ready.  Students can also complete a financial math concentration while completing the B.S. in Applied Math that prepares students for two actuarial exams: exam P and FM.  Applied Mathematics students can also complete a minor in Data Science or Computer Science with careful planning with their academic advisors.
