The applied mathematics specialization of the mathematics major enables students to concentrate their studies in applied mathematics. The Undergraduate Bulletin contains the official list of major requirements. However, students will meet all their requirements by completing the major requirements listed below and in the checklist, meeting the department’s retention and GPA requirements, and completing TCNJ’s liberal learning requirements. Below are additional program documents and other information about the specialization. For more information, please contact your advisor or the department chair.
Requirements for the mathematics major with specialization in applied mathematics
Core Courses (8.5 units)
MAT 099: Orientation to Mathematics and Statistics
MAT 128: Calculus B
MAT 200: Proof Writing Through Discrete Mathematics
MAT 205: Linear Algebra
MAT 229: Multivariable Calculus
STA 215: Statistical Inference
MAT 275: Sophomore Seminar
MAT 310: Real Analysis

Options (6 units)
Students complete an additional 6 course units by taking courses of their choosing. Three of these must be chosen from among the approved applied mathematics options list (see checklist below), to include at least one courses numbered between MAT400 and MAT480. Two of the remaining three courses are to be chosen from among all MAT and STA courses numbered 300 or above. The sixth course may be an additional MAT course numbered 300 or above or may be a course from the following list:
BIO 471/CSC 471, CHE 372, CSC 335, CSC 445, FIN 360, PHY 401
Students may count at most one course unit of independent study, guided study, or independent research (MAT/STA 39x/49x) as one of the six course units.
