Summary of Requirements for the Degree
 University Requirements (123 total s.h.)
 Students must complete all University requirements including those listed below.
 All Temple students must take a minimum of two writingintensive courses at Temple as part of their major. The specific writingintensive course options for this major are:
Course List Code Title Credit Hours MATH 3096 Introduction to Modern Algebra 3 MATH 3098 Modern Algebra 3 MATH 4096 Senior Problem Solving 3 SCTC 2396 Writing for Science and Technology 3  Students must complete the General Education (GenEd) requirements.
 See the General Education section of the Undergraduate Bulletin for the GenEd curriculum.
 Students who complete CST majors receive a waiver for 2 Science & Technology (GS) and 1 Quantitative Literacy (GQ) GenEd courses.
 Students must satisfy general Temple University residency requirements.

College Requirements
 45 UpperLevel (2000+) credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST), the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), or the College of Engineering (ENG).
 90 credits within the College of Science & Technology (CST), the College of Liberal Arts (CLA), or the College of Engineering (ENG).
 All students in the College of Science and Technology are required to take a one credit first year seminar. SCTC 1001 CST First Year Seminar is the appropriate course option for every entering first year CST major. Transfer students should use SCTC 2001 CST Transfer Seminar to fulfill this requirement. Other courses that fulfill this requirement may be found on the CST College Requirements page.

Calculation of Major GPA
Courses listed under the major requirements for the degree will be included in the calculation of the major GPA. Courses that could not apply toward the major as an elective or required course would not be counted in the calculation of the major GPA. This would include MATH 1022, for example.
Distinction in Major
To graduate with Distinction in Applied Mathematics a student should meet the following requirements:
 All requirements for the degree in Applied Mathematics must be met with a GPA of at least 3.50 in the Mathematics courses.
 At the time of graduation, the student's overall GPA, including all collegelevel courses, must be at least 3.25.
 Students must complete MATH 3098 instead of MATH 3096 in order to qualify for a Distinction in Major.
 A student must have a GPA of 3.50 or higher in MATH 3141, MATH 3142, MATH 3098, MATH 4051 and any additional courses from the following list:
