Bachelor of Science, Applied Mathematics (Plan of Study)

The Applied Mathematics Bachelor of Science degree at Florida Polytechnic University provides a broad education in mathematics with a focus on applications to other STEM fields, such as engineering, physics, and computer science. The program requires a four-course sequence in another discipline where mathematics plays a significant role. Students in the program acquire an in-depth understanding of the mathematical concepts, principals, and theory that underpin all STEM fields. Applied mathematics students use a broad range of techniques, to include modeling, computation, and data analysis, in solving complex problems and providing innovative solutions.

This program is only available to first time in college students admitted Fall 2019 and later.

See the Applied Mathematics Degree Flowchart  for further degree planning details.

See the Bachelor of Science, Applied Mathematics (Program Curriculum)  for full details on the program’s curriculum.

Interdisciplinary Sequence

12 credit hours interdisciplinary sequence, generally at the 3000-4000 level, subject to Department approval.

Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences

NOTE: The courses below are used to fill in the General Education requirements noted in the above four-year sequence. Students must take 9 credits total from Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences. Three must come from Arts and Humanities and three must come from Social Sciences. The other three credits may come from either category. Students must also satisfy the State’s Civics Literacy requirement and the University’s history requirement. While AMH 2020 satisfies both requirements, if students have satisfied the Civics Literacy requirement in some other way, they are encouraged to take a different AMH course. Fulfilling the Civics Literacy requirement independent of AMH 2020 does not satisfy the state’s core requirement for social sciences: one of the required social science courses must still be taken.

Arts and Humanities

Select 3 to 9 credits from the following courses:

Social Sciences

Select 3 to 9 credits from the following courses. Three credits must come from a History course.
