## Program Description

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied and Computational Mathematics (ACM) provides students with a new reason to major in mathematical sciences by emphasizing applied mathematics and mathematical modeling. Students will learn to apply mathematics to real world problems arising in various settings, as they master new mathematical techniques. ACM students will have the option to specialize in a desired field through emphases in Actuarial Science, Data Analytics, or Scientific Computing. The Scientific Computing emphasis will provide an interdisciplinary approach by collaborating with programs in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, and Engineering. Students will develop the knowledge and skills necessary for a wide range of employment opportunities in industry and government laboratories, as well as for entry into graduate schools.
