    Program Information:
    The program of study leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in Computational and Applied Mathematics provides a solid foundation in the application of analytical, geometrical, and numerical methods in problem solving and logical deduction. This program is highly customizable. In addition to a core set of mathematics courses, the program also requires completion of a minor or track that prepares the student for graduate study or for employment in various mathematics and statistics-related fields. The program also offers accelerated tracks leading to the MAT teacher certification and the M.S. in applied statistics. The goal of this major is to assist students in acquiring both an understanding of mathematics and an ability to apply it to the sciences. 

    This is a suggested 4-year schedule of courses based on the Computational and Applied Mathematics degree requirements and course prerequisites in the Fall 2017 Undergraduate Catalog. (If course prerequisites change, you must meet the prerequisites in effect when you take the course, so always check the current Catalog for course prerequisites.) 

    This program of study begins in the fall semester.

    Milestones/Notes:

    1. Must earn a grade of "C" or better in coursework.
    2. Not all courses are offered every semester.
    3. See KSU online Catalog or departmental website for pre-requisite(s) or course descriptions.
    4. For the Minor or Track Electives Area: Complete a formal minor, or complete one of the following B.S. Computational & Applied Mathematics Tracks:
    • Combined study in MATHEMATICS & STATISTICS
      Any 15 hours from Upper Division Electives. Many different directions can be taken with these 15 additional hours such as concentrations on mathematical applications in continuous or discrete areas, preparation for graduate programs in mathematics, etc.
    • Accelerated Bachelor's Master's Degree Option for Kennesaw State University's MASTER OF SCIENCE IN APPLIED STATISTICS
      Take the maximum number of MSAS graduate courses. Complete the rest of the track with any additional courses for Upper Division Electives.
    • Accelerated Bachelor's Master's Degree Options for Kennesaw State University's MASTER OF ART in TEACHING SECONDARY MATHEMATICS
      Take the maximum allowed number of MAT graduate courses. Complete the rest of the track with any additional courses from the following list:
    1. MATH 3295 - Mathematics for Middle and Secondary Teachers
    2. MATH 3395 - Geometric Proofs and Applications
    3. MATH 3495 - Advanced Perspectives on School Math I
    4. MATH 4495 - Advanced Perspectives on School Math II

Milestones: All courses indicated as a Milestone with this icon ( ) should be completed in the term suggested to prevent delays in program completion.

Disclaimer: An academic map is a suggested four-year schedule of courses based on degree requirements in the KSU undergraduate catalog. This sample schedule serves as a general guideline to help build a full schedule each term. Some departments allow students to use the three credit first-year seminar course as a free elective for a degree program, which may impact the program's total credit hours. Milestones, courses, and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major are designated to keep you on track to graduate in four years. Missing milestones could delay your program. Enrolled Students should reference DegreeWorks and not this plan.

This map is not a substitute for academic advisement—contact your advisor if you have any questions about scheduling or about your degree requirements. Also see the current undergraduate catalog (catalog.kennesaw.edu) for a complete list of requirements and electives. Note: Requirements are continually under revision, and there is no guarantee they will not be changed or revoked; contact the department and/or program area for current information.

You may choose to attend a summer term to reduce your load during fall or spring terms but still stay on track to graduate in four years.
