Requirements for the Applied Mathematical Sciences Major
Applied Mathematical Sciences Requirements (80-82 units): In addition to General Education and School of Natural Sciences Requirements, the Applied Mathematical Sciences major consists of 20 or 21 courses (10 lower division and 10 or 11 upper division, depending on the emphasis track chosen) designed to give all students a common foundation of core knowledge specific to the discipline, plus breadth in an application area.
* For the Computational Biology emphasis track listed below, students must take BIO 001 and BIO 001L.
† For the Environmental emphasis track listed below, students will take ESS 001 to fulfill emphasis track requirements and must take a different course to fulfill the Lower Division Course requirement.
Applicants must have a minimum overall GPA of 2.8 in transferable courses. Any outstanding General Education and Major preparation coursework will be completed at UC Merced.
