Applied Mathematics - BS, Cryptography Emphasis
The curriculum in the Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics with a Cryptography emphasis explores the application of analytical problem solving tools to concrete problems in cybersecurity. Students in the Cryptography emphasis investigate a broad array of techniques in applied and pure mathematics and pursue electives in computer science that demonstrate how mathematics is central to keeping information and data secure.
A student completing this program is prepared to enter employment with analytical and quantitative tools relevant to technological industries or government, especially in cybersecurity related fields. Furthermore, with the appropriate electives chosen, the student is prepared to enter quantitatively oriented graduate schools, including PhD programs in Applied Mathematics or Mathematics. A minor in computer science or cybersecurity is well suited to students in this program. All advising for this degree option is done through the Undergraduate Program Office in the Department of Mathematics.
