As an Applied Mathematics major, you gain a well-rounded education in the liberal arts focused on the mathematical sciences and their use in solving quantitative questions in mathematics and other disciplines. The program emphasizes computer-based modeling and statistical methods, and provides opportunities for collaborative research with our faculty.
The curriculum integrates technology and theoretical mathematics to teach you how mathematics can solve real problems in research and industry. The major prepares you for advanced study in mathematics, statistics, or a related field, as well as for programs in the sciences, health sciences, and business. For example, several students are taking Applied Mathematics as a double major with Marine Sciences, Biochemistry, and Medical Biology. The program provides the skills you need for a career in business, industry, finance, research, or a number of other fields.
Mathematics with Secondary Education Certification
If you are interested in teaching high school mathematics, you can complete a double major in Applied Mathematics and Secondary Education or a major in Secondary Education and a concentration in Mathematics. For more information, see our Department of Education.
If you want to double major, you will find that an Applied Mathematics major complements many science, health sciences, and business majors, as mathematics is increasingly used in these areas of study.
UNE also offers a minor in Applied Mathematics, which is an excellent enhancement to bachelor’s degrees in biological, marine, physical, and health sciences and business.
