Applied Mathematics is the application of mathematics to real-world problems.  It is inherently multi-disciplinary given that the applications generally do not arise from within mathematics itself, but in many other disciplines. Some applications are in obvious fields such as science, economics, and engineering.

The primary objective of the Computational and Applied Mathematics (CAM) program is to provide a structure for students to integrate their interest and ability in theoretical mathematics with a complementary interest in an application to another discipline.  Objectives of the CAM program are to develop students' technical problem-solving skills and to equip students for a career or graduate school by combining the CNU liberal-learning foundation with a rigorous mathematics core and a substantive investigation into their chosen application field.  The major is completed by choosing one of the following concentrations:

  • Biology and Life Sciences
  • Computational Chemistry
  • Economics
  • Physics, Dynamics, and Engineering

In addition to the successful completion of the liberal-learning curriculum, students seeking a Bachelor of Science in Computational and Applied Mathematics, biology and life sciences concentration, must successfully complete the following courses:

  1. MATH 250, 260 320, 360, 440;
  2. MATH 451 or MATH 499;
  3. Select two: CPSC 270, PHYS 341, or any 300-400 level MATH (excluding 301W, 490, 495, and 499). Recommended selections are CPSC 270, MATH 335 or 380;
  4. CPSC 150/150L and 250/250L;
  5. BIOL 211/211L, 213/213L, 313, and 326;
  6. CHEM 121/121L/, 122/122L.
