Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics and Statistics
The B.Sc. Applied Mathematics & Statistics program offers training in mathematical problem solving techniques with a reduced emphasis on abstract theory. The program is tailored to the student who will need to apply mathematical, statistical, and computational methods to practical problems. Applied mathematics includes the theoretical portions of physics, chemistry, biomedicine, engineering, economics, finance, and a wide variety of other disciplines. Recent advances in computing technology have made the use of quantitative methods of even greater importance in these disciplines. Prospects for employment opportunities for graduates in the mathematical and statistical sciences are excellent. There is a growing demand for professional mathematicians and statisticians in almost every sector of the job market, including the engineering and telecommunications industries, computer services and software development, actuarial and financial services, pharmaceutical industry and medical services, market research agencies, government laboratories and the military services, and academics and teaching.
