Courses within this major can provide foundations applicable to the many fields of engineering, physical sciences, life sciences, behavioral and social sciences, and computer sciences. Undergraduate majors have considerable freedom to plan a course of study consistent with their particular interests.
The CAAM Department offers a B.A. degree with advanced courses chosen from the areas of:
Students majoring in computational and applied mathematics are required to complete the 49-52 semester hours spelled out in the following program of study.
Course # | Course Title |
CAAM 210: | Introduction to Engineering Computation |
CAAM 335: | Matrix Analysis |
MATH 101: | Single Variable Calculus I* |
MATH 102: | Single Variable Calculus II |
MATH 212: | Multivariable Calculus+ |
*Students with prior experience with calculus may replace MATH 101 with a 3-credit quantitative elective at the 200-level or above, as approved by a CAAM undergraduate advisor. (This quantitative elective is in addition to the four electives required below.)
+Students may substitute the Honors Calculus sequence (MATH 221, 222) for MATH 212.
Entering students should enroll in the most advanced course commensurate with their background; advice is available from the CAAM department during Orientation Week.
