Applied Mathematics and Statistics Major

QTM and the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (Math/CS) offer a joint major in Applied Mathematics and Statistics (AMS).

Combining the strengths of both departments, this major offers a more mathematically rigorous and in-depth path than the Quantitative Sciences major. It will give you the necessary building blocks for statistical analysis as well as the tools and conceptual foundations for quantitative research and empirical quantitative work.

You’ll take courses like Introduction to Scientific Methods and Regression Analysis as well as courses in statistical computing, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and probability and statistics. You’ll also have additional courses and electives that draw from QTM, applied mathematics, and computer science.

Whether you’re planning to work in data-oriented or quantitative fields; go to graduate school for statistics or applied math, actuarial science or financial mathematics; or pursue interdisciplinary graduate training in the social sciences, physical and natural sciences, or engineering, this major will prepare you.
