## BS in Applied Math Requirements

**This page is for the old APM major which applies to class years 2021 or earlier. Class years 2022 or later see the new APM major page.**

Students looking to complete a BS in applied mathematics must complete the required courses in the following areas:

For more information speak to a mathematics advisor or see the undergraduate handbook.

### Foundational Course Requirement

The following foundational courses must be completed before acceptance into the major:

- MTH 161: Calculus IA
- MTH 162: Calculus IIA
- MTH 164: Multidimensional Calculus
- MTH 165: Linear Algebra with Differential Equations
- PHY 121: Mechanics
- PHY 122: Electricity and Magnetism

Equivalent courses can be substituted for the above requirements:

- MTH 171, 172, and 174 for the equivalent MTH 161, 162, and 164
- MTH 173 for MTH 165
- MTH 141-143 for MTH 161-162

AP courses can also be used to satisfy foundational requirements.

### Core Course Requirement

Students must complete the following four courses:

- MTH 235: Linear Algebra*
- MTH 201: Introduction to Probability
- MTH 265: Functions of a Real Variable I
- MTH 282: Introduction to Complex Variables with Applications

An honors version of a course can always be substituted for the listed course.

* The requirement that MTH 235 be taken can also be satisfied by completing MTH 173. MTH 235 should be taken early in the student's major program.

### Advanced Course Requirement

In addition to the core courses, students must complete five 4-credit advanced courses as follows:

- Three advanced mathematics courses*
- Two additional advanced courses with substantial mathematical content

* Any mathematics course numbered 200 or above (excluding core courses) qualifies as an advanced mathematics course.

### Upper Level Writing Requirement

To satisfy the upper level writing requirement, students must pass two upper level writing courses of a certain type.
