About the Applied Mathematics Area of Concentration

For students with strong analytical skills, technical abilities and hands-on experiences, the Applied Mathematics Area of Concentration at New College is designed to provide you with the foundations of mathematics and the skills needed to apply them to the real-world.

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, Statistics, Computer Science and other concentrations in what we call a “slash” degree.
