Advising Note: This suggested schedule represents one possible scenario for taking the minimum number of Applied Math courses required for the major. After the 24 credit option requirement is satisfied, further technical electives can be selected from additional APPM courses or from other areas of interest to the student.

* When selecting humanities and social sciences (HSS) electives, students should consult the college’s degree requirements in this area.

** Recommended but not required.

*** A list of college-approved writing courses can be found on the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Writing page.

**** Several senior sequences are available (consult an Applied Mathematics advisor).
