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 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.
