The program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Computational and Applied Mathematics provides a solid foundation in the application of analytical, geometrical, and numerical methods in problem solving and logical deduction. This program is highly customizable. In addition to a core set of mathematics courses, the program also requires completion of a minor or track that prepares the student for graduate study or for employment in various mathematics and statistics-related fields. The program also offers accelerated tracks leading to the MAT teacher certification and the M.S. in applied statistics. The goal of this major is to assist students in acquiring both an understanding of mathematics and an ability to apply it to the sciences.
This program does not have specific admission requirements and only admission to Kennesaw State University is required. For more information, please visit the section of Admissions in the catalog.
Each student is expected to meet the Academic Policies Graduation Policies and Procedures outlined in the Academic Policies section of the catalog.
