required for program
An Applied Mathematics major prepares you to use applied and theoretical mathematics to solve quantitative problems in business, government, and technology. Learn about quantitative design in God's creation from expert mathematicians. The applied mathematics major is built to meet the increasing need for mathematicians in areas of science and technology and to prepare you for further graduate study in mathematics.
In the Applied Mathematics program, you'll gain skills needed to thrive in science and technology industries. With an Applied Mathematics degree, you'll gain knowledge needed for graduate study in mathematics.
At Northwestern, you'll learn from Christ-centered professors with professional expertise. You'll study concepts including infinite, dimension, and mathematical certainty in a faith-based program. You'll also investigate how faith has shaped the development of quantitative disciplines.
Northwestern students take part in local, regional, national, and international mathematics competitions. You also have the opportunity to present your work at local and national conferences.
My education at Northwestern has greatly prepared me to show people how God works in mathematics—from Fractal Geometry, to the concept of Infinity, and so much more. The kindness and faithfulness I have seen from my Professors during my time at UNW has really inspired me to continue chasing after and learning about God's creation while studying in a STEM field.
