As an applied mathematics major you’ll learn to formulate and analyze mathematical abstractions of real world problems. You will choose one of three tracks to pursue: classical applied math, math modeling and analytics in the natural science, or statistics. Through a selection of elective courses, you'll be able to dive into a specialized curriculum that suits your interests.

Applied Mathematics is much more than just numbers. Your foundational knowledge, coupled with real-world problem solving skills and Siena’s liberal arts foundation will prepare you to emerge as a leader in the field of mathematics, or set you on a path to further your career through advanced study.

Programs offered:

  • B.A. in Applied Mathematics
  • B.S. in Applied Mathematics
