What are some careers in this field?

Check out these ideas from ODU Career Development Services and the Occupational Information Network (O*NET). A median salary is the midpoint of what people typically earn—half of those surveyed earned above the median salary, and half earned below.




Conduct research in fundamental mathematics or in application of mathematical techniques to science, management, and other fields. Solve problems in various fields using mathematical methods.




Analyze statistical data, such as mortality, accident, sickness, disability, and retirement rates and construct probability tables to forecast risk and liability for payment of future benefits. May ascertain insurance rates required and cash reserves necessary to ensure payment of future benefits.

Operations Research Analysts



Formulate and apply mathematical modeling and other optimizing methods to develop and interpret information that assists management with decision making, policy formulation, or other managerial functions. May collect and analyze data and develop decision support software, service, or products. May develop and supply optimal time, cost, or logistics networks for program evaluation, review, or implementation.


What are some courses offered in Mathematics and Computational and Applied Mathematics at ODU?

MATH 317:
Calculus IV: Introductory Analysis

An introduction to real analysis. Topics covered include completeness and topological properties of real line, theory of sequences, limits of functions, continuity, Fundamental Theorem of calculus, Leibniz?s rule. Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in MATH 212.

MATH 622:
Numerical Solutions to Differential Equations

An in-depth study of the numerical solution to ordinary and partial differential equations. Topics include linear multi-step methods, Runge-Kutta methods, stiff differential equations, collocation methods, and strong and weak stability analysis for ODEs. For PDEs, finite difference methods are examined. Prerequisites: MATH 509.

MATH 632:
Master?s Project

Under the guidance of a faculty member in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, the student will undertake a significant data analysis problem in a scientific setting outside the department. A written report and/or public presentation of results will be required. Prerequisite: permission of graduate program director.


What are the requirements to apply for Mathematics and Computational and Applied Mathematics at ODU?

Students entering the Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's of Science Program program in Mathematics and Computational and Applied Mathematics should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Undergraduate Admission)

Students in the program will fulfill all normal admission and curricular requirements for both a B.S. in mathematics and an M.S. in computational and applied mathematics with the following exceptions:  Students in the program may count up to 12 hours of 500 or 600 level graduate courses, excluding independent study, taken as an undergraduate for which they have earned a grade point average of 3.0 or greater with no course grade lower than a B- toward both the B.S. in mathematics and the M.S. in computational and applied mathematics. Approved graduate courses can substitute for required undergraduate courses.
