What is the bachelor of science degree in applied mathematics?
The applied mathematics degree program combines a strong foundation in mathematics with broad exposure to both theoretical and computational models of physical systems in the natural and social sciences. Students are prepared for a wide range of careers or graduate study in applied mathematics or a related field.
Why study applied mathematics at UNH?
You will work alongside accomplished mathematicians, statisticians and mathematics educators who are professionally active. Upperlevel mathematics classes tend to be small, so you’ll enjoy close connections to professors as they delve into the intricacies of advanced ideas. An accelerated master’s program is available in applied mathematics,allowing students to complete their master’s degree early. This department has produced many winners of the prestigious Department of Defense SMART Scholarship.

 Students recognize common mathematical notations and operations used in mathematics, science and engineering.
 Students can recognize and classify a variety of mathematical models including differential equations, linear and nonlinear systems of algebraic equations, and common probability distributions.
 Students have developed a working knowledge (including notation, terminology, foundational principles of the discipline, and standard mathematical models within the discipline) in at least one discipline outside of mathematics.
 Students are able to extract useful knowledge, both quantitative and qualitative, from mathematical models and can apply that knowledge to the relevant discipline.
