Applied Mathematics: Economics Option B.S.
Program Overview
What is the economics option in applied mathematics?
The economics option in the applied mathematics degree program combines a broad foundation in mathematics with coursework in macro and microeconomics, economic analysis and econometrics roughly equivalent to a minor in economics. Students completing this program are prepared for graduate study in mathematics or a career in business or industry.
Why study applied mathematics at UNH?
This program allows you to choose a specific interest and pursue it alongside accomplished mathematicians, statisticians and educators who have won prestigious honors including a Grammy Award and a MacArthur “genius” grant. 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.
