(MA31) Mathematics-Applied Science B.S.
B.A. effective 1997 Fall Quarter. B.S. effective 2012 Winter Quarter.

Faculty advisor: David Meyer

Half of this major’s upper division coursework includes linear algebra, real analysis, and other mathematics courses chosen by the student, and half is selected by the student for approval from one or two other departments (such as physics, chemistry, economics, cognitive science, computer science, or any in engineering). This makes the major act as a joint major in mathematics and applied science. The curriculum allows the flexibility of completing a cohesive program designed around a student’s academic interests.


A note on the MA31 Lower-Division Programming Requirement: Students do not necessarily have to take Java Programming for this major. Please click here for a list of C++ Programming courses that can also satisfy your lower division programming requirement. Students may choose to use a C++ Programming course in place of CSE 8B, CSE 11, or ECE 15 for this requirement. Any courses not pre-approved on the above list could also be petitioned.

*Note that course numbers at Community Colleges may be subject to change. Please contact the Math Department through the VAC if you believe you have taken one of the approved C++ courses above and we will evaluate the course and update your degree audit.
