Math: the language of an increasingly broader range of human activity.

The Pitt-Greensburg Mathematics faculty are excited about the possibilities that acquiring mathematical knowledge and skills can provide you.  Mathematics has long been the language of science, but it is also the language of an increasingly broader range of other human activity.  Mathematical analysis and computational modeling are crucial for solving some of the most challenging problems we currently face — new sources of energy, climate change, managing risk, epidemiology, etc.  The ability to apply mathematics using technology is accelerating. The use of mathematics is so ubiquitous that a solid foundation of mathematical knowledge and skills will aid you in the pursuit of nearly any technical field.

The Applied Mathematics degree program at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg provides the foundational courses in applied mathematics; the calculus sequence, linear algebra, numerical analysis, and differential equations.  As an applied math student, you are encouraged to explore areas of application, choosing one specific area to concentrate on above others. These areas include Computer Science/Information Technology, Statistics, Actuarial Science, and Education, among others.

The personalized attention and practical application opportunities that students receive ensures that they will be attractive to firms offering employment in these fields.
