It is recommended that students in the Mathematics – Applied Mathematics major at Colorado State University supplement the core mathematical program with courses in their chosen application area; for example, engineering, public health, finance, electronics, or geology.
Course requirements emphasize mathematical foundations as well as the application of mathematics in other disciplines. In particular, students receive training in numerical analysis, mathematical modeling, statistics, and computing, as well as a solid preparation for further study.
- Obtain a solid background in theoretical mathematics and will be able to participate in mathematical work in a variety of fields or continue on to graduate school.
- Be able to apply a range of mathematical and statistical tools to a diverse set of problems as presented to them in either employment or the pursuit of further education.
- Be capable of describing their mathematical assumptions and results to colleagues.
The Mathematics major prepares students for a wide variety of occupations in business, industry, government, and education.
Actuarial science graduates who have passed the first two professional actuary exams can expect to find positions with excellent entry-level salaries. Applied mathematics graduates continue to find employment opportunities in government and private industry.
Many pursue advanced degrees in mathematics, computational science, or engineering. About one-third of general mathematics graduates continue on to graduate school in mathematics or other disciplines, with the rest finding employment in a large variety of capacities.
Education students spend a semester teaching a classroom and have excellent job placement.
Participation in internships, volunteer activities, or cooperative education opportunities is highly recommended to enhance practical training and development. Graduates who continue to pursue advanced degrees can attain more responsible positions with the possibility of rising to top professional levels.
“My experience at CSU, and particularly in the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology has been invaluable! The program was both challenging and supportive.”
