Mathematicians are problem solvers — investigating problems, formulating questions, determining applicable mathematics, solving problems and communicating solutions.

Our bachelor's degree program in applied mathematics examines the practical applications of mathematics in science and operations research. Your degree prepares you for the growing importance of analyzing and applying statistics and data.

Launch your career



With the department’s approval, enter the honors program in mathematics, where you’ll have the opportunity to pursue advanced topics and work with faculty one-on-one.
