New Major: Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics

Spring 2018

Starting in the fall of 2018, Brandeis students will have a new option for their major: a Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics. This new major is part of a broader expansion of the mathematics department into applied areas, with a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research and training of undergraduate and graduate students. Central to this effort is the hiring of three new faculty members, Jonathan Touboul, Thomas Fai, and John Wilmes, who will expand the mathematical horizons of undergraduate and graduate students, and establish new research connections across the sciences at Brandeis. Please see course descriptions in the University Bulletin and read more details on the Science at Brandeis blog.
