Supplementary Major in Applied Mathematics

Supplementary Major in Applied Mathematics


The program consists of 24 credit hours in the designated list of courses. To earn a supplementary major in applied mathematics a student must earn 15 credits from the listed Categories I.A and I.B of which at least 9 credits must be from Category I.B.

A student must also earn at least 9 credits from the Category II list of related disciplines. The courses in Category II may be taken from any combination of areas.

Note: Any student in a college that is not the College of Arts and Sciences who fulfills the mathematics course requirements for SMAM will have automatically fulfilled one VWW requirement under the 9-hour rule.

If you have any questions, please contact advisor: Tony Wang <twang@nmsu.edu>.

To apply, visit the Arts and Sciences Deans' office in Breland Hall 152.
