Emphasis in Applied Mathematics
This emphasis is designed to train the student in those areas of mathematics which may be applied to formulate and solve problems in other disciplines. The program is designed to qualify the student for employment as an applied mathematician, but the graduate would also be well prepared for graduate study in pure or applied mathematics.
A minor is not required with this major.
Impacted Program
These courses cannot be taken for credit/no credit (Cr/NC). The cumulative GPA in MATH 245 , MATH 252 , and MATH 254 must be a C+ (2.3) or better.
Complete with a grade of C (2.0) or better:
Preparation for the Major
(28 units)
These courses must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better, and cannot be taken for credit/no credit (Cr/NC). The cumulative GPA in MATH 245 , MATH 252 , and MATH 254 must be a C+ (2.3) or better.
Graduation Writing Assessment Requirement
Passing the Writing Placement Assessment with a score of 10 or completing one of the approved upper division writing courses (W) with a grade of C (2.0) or better. See “Graduation Requirements ” section for a complete listing of requirements.
Major
A minimum of 36 upper division units to include
15 Units of Electives in Mathematics
Students planning to take MATH 499 as an elective course must obtain approval from the program adviser.
15 units of electives in mathematics or an area to which mathematics may be applied (approved by the applied mathematics adviser) excluding
Master Plan
A master plan of the courses taken to fulfill the major must be approved by the adviser and filed with the major department.
Auxiliary Area
The intent is to train the student in an area in some depth. Some latitude may be allowed in the choice of department and mix of courses, but all programs must be approved by the applied mathematics adviser. The 10 unit requirement is minimal, and a minor in an approved field is highly recommended.
A minimum of 10 units (lower or upper division) from an area to which mathematics may be applied. A typical program might be
