Applied Mathematics at RWU moves beyond theory, blending the study of mathematics with a wide array of applications in many fields: biology, chemistry, environmental science, scientific computing, physics and statistics.
The Applied Mathematics major prepares students for a variety of career opportunities. Just few examples are that many graduates find employment in the banking and investment sector, while others work for consulting, insurance, pharmaceutical, software and service companies; some of our students also go on to graduate or law school.
Several factors distinguish Roger Williams University from the competition. For starters, small class size means more personalized attention from our faculty members. Our students are involved on campus—as math tutors and as members of the Mathematics Honor Society. Unlike at other institutions, our talented students get to co-author math publications with our faculty. In fact, our students are currently working on the Numerical Solution of the Helmholtz Equation for the Pseudosphere, and Foundations of General Relativity and some speculations on the Einstein-Grossmann Collaboration.
Applied Mathematics majors at RWU are expected to have the ability to:
