An applied mathematics/statistics major gives you the ability to make powerful choices about your future. Once you’ve gained your degree as a Blugold, you have the opportunity to pursue a career that requires a scientific or engineering application of mathematics — or you may find that a statistics career such as quality improvement suits your interests. Many of your fellow Blugolds continue their education through graduate work in applied or statistical areas. No matter what your specific interests, the faculty, staff, advisors and numerous other academic resources are here to help you.
