### Major in Appled Mathematics

#### Undergraduate Mathematics Home

### The applied and computational mathematics major

This mathematics major has a focus toward mathematical topics most related to applications in the sciences and engineering, as well as coursework in numerical and computational mathematics. Students are prepared for further graduate study or careers in scientific or quantitative fields.

See the Department of Mathematics section of the Undergraduate General Bulletin for course descriptions and prerequisites: registrar.fsu.edu/bulletin/undergraduate/departments/mathematics.

**Note:** Major requirements are occasionally updated and are determined for a particular student according to the Bulletin in effect at the time of a student's admission to the major.
The following link shows an archive of previous versions of the Bulletin:
registrar.fsu.edu/archive/bulletin/undergraduate/. Meeting with the Major Advisor is important to ensure that the correct major requirements are being satisfied.

*Note that the semesters indicated show when these courses are usually offered,
but this is subject to change. Courses marked "irregular" are courses
which are not offered on a regular basis.*
