Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics offers several standard concentration programs which are listed in detail in the Course Announcement Bulletin and on the Registrar's web-page. Both the A.B. and Sc.B. concentrations in Applied Mathematics require certain basic courses to be taken, but beyond this there is a great deal of flexibility as to which areas of application are pursued. Students are encouraged to take courses in applied mathematics, mathematics and one or more of the application areas in the natural sciences, social sciences or engineering. Whichever areas are chosen should be studied in some depth.

Standard program for the A.B. degree.

Prerequisite: MATH 0090, 0100 or their equivalent.

Program: Ten additional semester courses approved by the Division of Applied Mathematics. These classes must include:

APMA 0330, 0340 will sometimes be accepted as substitutes for APMA 0350, 0360. Of the unspecified courses four should be chosen from the 1000-level courses taught by the Division of Applied Mathematics. Substitution of alternate courses for the specific requirements is subject to approval of the division. Concentrators are urged to consider MATH 0540 as an alternative to MATH 0520 and to complete their introductory programming course before the end of their sophomore year.

Standard program for the Sc.B. degree.

Eighteen approved semester courses in mathematics, applied mathematics, engineering, the natural or social sciences. These classes must include;

APMA 0330, 0340 will sometimes be accepted as substitutes for APMA 0350, 0360. Of the unspecified courses six should be chosen from the 1000-level or higher level courses taught by the Division of Applied Mathematics. Substitution of alternate courses for the specific requirements is subject to approval by the division. Concentrators are urged to consider MATH 0540 as an alternative to MATH 0520 and to complete their introductory programming course before the end of their sophomore year.
