Math is everywhere—it tells stories, solves problems, powers entertainment platforms, and so much more. But what can you do with a degree in math? Mathematicians are in high demand in every sector of the workforce, so you can take your passion for all things mathematical into almost any field you choose.
Champlain has always been dedicated to the application of learning: we don’t just want to teach you advanced math, we want to show you how to use it in the future.
Champlain’s Applied Mathematics program is unique in that it allows you to focus on the math you love while learning how to make use of it on the job. In addition to gaining a solid foundation in math theory and concepts, you’ll be able to apply that knowledge in various professional settings. That fusion of math itself with its utilization isn’t something you’ll find in every college curriculum. By the time you graduate from Champlain, you won’t just be solving math problems, you’ll be solving problems with math.
In addition to traditional classroom studies, you’ll get hands-on experience with projects and have plenty of opportunity for life-changing internships. Through your applied electives, you’ll get to explore the many different ways in which math can be used to solve problems and answer questions.
Champlain’s Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to take the courses you’re most interested in right from the start—there’s no waiting until sophomore or junior year to begin your program studies! You’ll take math courses in your first year and explore the other areas of study that appeal to you.
The Applied Mathematics curriculum includes four main components:
Our Math Foundation is a sequence of seven courses in Calculus, Linear Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, Probability/Statistics, and Programming. These courses lay a foundation of the requisite theory and skills that you will build upon as your major progresses.
Your math elective credits allow you to focus on particular areas of math that interest and excite you.
The applied elective coursework will build your understanding of the many ways math can be used to answer questions, build systems, and power all kinds of work. These course options are numerous (over 3 million combinations—of course, we did the math!) and widely varied, allowing you to shape the “applied” portion of your Applied Mathematics degree to your chosen field.
The curriculum provides enough general elective credits to allow you to choose any of Champlain’s minors, further customizing your education to your interests and career goals.

WHERE RIGOROUS ACADEMICS MEET A CULTURE OF COLLABORATION AND INNOVATION
Many students choose Champlain because of the community and personalized learning environment. Our small class sizes mean you can engage in deeper discussions with your professors and your peers. Share your thoughts and get your questions answered in a conversation, rather than a crowded lecture hall. Your professors will know you and look forward to seeing you in class—your presence and perspective are valued here.
Champlain education in applied math can prepare you for all kinds of careers—including some that might not even exist yet.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts strong growth in math occupations—stronger, in fact, than the average of all other occupations. The bureau also reports higher-than-average salaries for mathematicians. Adding any of Champlain's minors to your repertoire is a fantastic way to develop your interests and stand out from the crowd. You could hone your focus with Data Science, Accounting, or Game Programming. Round out your education with Social Justice, Community Management, or Law. Whatever your interests, a minor can perfectly position you for a specific career or field of work.
Champlain's Applied Mathematics curriculum is designed to encourage a semester of international study. Our approach allows you to study abroad and still graduate on time.
