The application of mathematics is relevant in virtually any area of life. As an applied mathematics major at Fresno Pacific University, you’ll learn to pair pattern recognition, modeling and abstraction with mathematical descriptions. Learn from professors with diverse backgrounds including engineering, science, and advanced mathematics as you work on projects and research that cross over multiple disciplines. Courses are project-oriented so you’ll get a hands-on learning approach whether you’re testing probability and statistical methods or creating your own independent research project. With the wide scope of skills, you’ll acquire in this program, you’ll be ready for a career in a variety of fields such as business, science and engineering.
- Small class sizes allow for exploratory collaboration between classmates and professors
- Heavy emphasis on research allows for the development of semester long-projects
- Faculty who are experts in their field and who care about their students
- Program readily prepares graduates for a Masters in STEM or in continued mathematics programs
Common career fields for applied mathematics majors include industrial engineering, applied statistics, information technology, computer networking, actuarial sciences and data analysis. Our graduates are also well prepared for graduate-level work, including master’s research programs as both the BA and BS programs may lead to various MA or MS programs.

In order to obtain a bachelor’s degree from Fresno Pacific University, students must complete at least 120 units. Along with completing all required courses in their selected area of study, general education requirements must be met by all graduates. See the general education summary in the undergraduate academic catalog for more information.
Select programs may not provide enough units for a student to graduate and therefore an emphasis and/or elective courses must be completed alongside the major. Please see below for emphases related to this area of study.
