Why Choose Applied Mathematics?
Although many positions with the title "mathematician" or "statistician" require a graduate degree, there is a growing demand for people whose undergraduate training emphasizes modern applied mathematics. These positions are typically interdisciplinary and focus on a combination of modeling, analysis, statistics, and computation. They are found in such diverse fields as financial services, pharmaceutical research, and municipal administration. Applied mathematicians are found everywhere in commerce, industry, and government where quantitative data is used to make decisions. Our graduates have found positions in insurance companies, research laboratories, and Internet startups, among other places.
