The Universal Language: Do You Speak Math?

Mathematics is the language of scientists, bankers, engineers, insurance executives, economists, computer systems analysts, and businessmen.

As an applied mathematics major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, you’ll become fluent in this “language” through IUP’s comprehensive selection of courses.

Under the guidance of IUP’s Mathematics faculty, you’ll take classes such as Calculus II, Probability and Statistics for Natural Sciences, Differential Equations, and Introduction to Mathematical Proofs. As part of your major, you’ll also choose from a list of mathematics courses and will take a few classes in computer science.

Choose a Track That Suits Your Interests

You can further structure your classes to meet your objectives by taking one of three specialized tracks: Actuarial/Statistics, Math Analyst/Engineering, or Operations Research. You can count on IUP’s Applied Mathematics program to broaden your mathematical expertise and to put you on the path to success in this field.

The Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics degree will prepare you for a career in financial forecasting, space systems, transportation, cryptography, construction, computer graphics, medicine, robotics, economics, statistical analysis, government, industry, or management science.

It is logical to consider your options. Many of those who complete this degree follow it with graduate studies, typically in applied mathematics.
