Courses for AMS Majors

The BS in Applied Mathematics and Statistics is a joint major that provides the rigor of a BS degree emphasizing topics in applied mathematics and in statistics. Suitable for students interested in employment in many data/quantitatively-oriented fields, or pursuing graduate studies in applied math, quantitative social sciences, natural sciences, or engineering. 

Please note, students must meet the minimum GPA requirement of 2.0 to graduate with any major or minor from the department.

All classes counting toward the degree must be taken for a letter grade.
