5-year BS/MS program in Applied Mathematics Targeted for Honors Students


Do you have many interests?  Are you undecided about a major?  Then studies in applied mathematics may be just right for you.  The field of applied mathematics offers an array of varied and challenging work.  Professionals use theories and techniques, such as mathematical modeling and computational methods, to solve practical problems in such diverse fields as business, biology, medicine, management, economics, government, computer science, physics, psychology, engineering and social science.  Mathematicians collaborate with professionals in other fields of study to achieve common solutions to problems.  After successfully completing an interdisciplinary five-year bachelor/masterís program in applied mathematics, a student will receive at the same time a bachelorís degree, not necessarily in mathematics, and a masterís degree in applied mathematics.  The program gives students comprehensive training in analysis as well as applied and computational mathematics.  Students will be trained in an interdisciplinary team environment.  This teamwork, combined with a broad range of engaging and challenging courses, prepares students for careers in todayís industrial and scientific environments, or for continued study at the doctoral level.  For more information about the program, please read the attached document.  A sample curriculum is also available.  Students interested in the program should contact Dr. Jerry Young, gwyoung@uakron.edu.
