Why Study Applied Mathematics at New College?
Applied Mathematics at New College is both challenging and exciting. Working closely with faculty, you will have the chance not only to learn advanced mathematical methods but also to individually tailor your academic program to match your unique interests and needs. And well before graduation, you will be able to work on advanced material that students often encounter only in master's programs, thus giving you an advantage when it comes to graduate school and future employment.
For instance, one of New College’s professors in Applied Mathematics conducts research on mathematical modeling of biological systems with a focus on regulatory biochemical networks. He collaborates with faculty at other universities to create models and shares his findings and research opportunities with his students. These are the sort of opportunities you will not find available at other leading liberal arts colleges.
In addition to standard coursework, many students in Pure Mathematics, Applied Math, Computational Science and Bioinformatics at New College pursue summer research and internships through a variety of local, regional and national organizations. The quality of our math programs has resulted in a number of students receiving prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) REU grants in recent years. Students have also completed internships with Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, one of the country's leading biomedical research organizations. Others have participated in internships with a host of other local and regional business partners associated with New College.
