# Applied Mathematics and Statistics Degrees

## Degree Descriptions

**The BS in Applied Mathematics and Statistics**
is a joint major that provides the rigor of a BS degree emphasizing topics in applied mathematics and in statistics.
Suitable for students interested in employment in
many data/quantitatively-oriented fields, or pursuing
graduate studies in applied math, quantitative
social sciences, natural sciences, or engineering.

Please note, students must meet the minimum GPA requirement of 2.0 to graduate
with any major or minor from the department.

**All classes counting toward the degree must be taken for a letter grade.**
