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.
The Applied Mathematics Area of Concentration at New College is designed to provide students the foundations of mathematics and the skills needed to apply mathematics to real-world applications. The program offers students with strong analytical skills, technical abilities and hands-on experiences. While this dynamic and fast growing field once had a heavy emphasis on physics, today at New College and around the world it combines the use of advanced mathematical methods in seeking answers to complex problems in the biological sciences, engineering and industry. Many New College students pursue an Applied Mathematics AOC all on its own, while others combine the major with studies in Biology, Physics, Economics and other concentrations in what we call a “slash” degree.
Minimal requirements for a degree in Applied Mathematics:
In addition, a course in Complex Analysis is highly recommended.
