A major in Applied Mathematics and Statistics opens up countless opportunities for intellectual growth and career advancement. Through the major, our students are encouraged to develop an appreciation for the role mathematical modeling plays in decision making and the building of scientific knowledge.
We provide our students with a solid mathematical foundation by covering discrete mathematics, optimization, probability, statistics, and differential equations. We also allow students the flexibility to explore other disciplines, including ones in which mathematics plays a critical role, such as biology, biomedical engineering, finance, and economics. Students often find they can pursue interests in disciplines for which the connection to mathematics is not as obvious, such as environmental engineering, computer science, finance, and economics.
Students interested in pursuing a 2nd major in Applied Mathematics and Statistics will need to submit an Add Major/Minor Request Form through SIS, and meet with Lisa Wetzelberger. Please send your unofficial transcripts to [email protected] and set up an advising appointment here.
Students interested in pursuing a minor in Applied Mathematics and Statistics should submit an Add Major/Minor Request Form through SIS as well as send their minor course plan to Kristin Bechtel at [email protected].
The AMS Department will be pausing approvals of second majors and minors for a few weeks around the advising/registration period. Students may continue to submit requests in SIS, and academic staff will continue to meet with students, but we will not approve requests between April 5 and May 4.
For information about major requirements, please see the section below that corresponds to your date of matriculation at JHU.
