SUMMARY

Majoring in Applied Mathematics is a valuable choice and frequently a mandatory first step for scholars trying to begin a career as a computer systems analyst, a logistician, or a civil engineer. Interestingly, nationally, applied mathematics is a fairly common choice coming in at the 92nd most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 4,288 applied mathematics degrees conferred. In-state tuition for applied mathematics at private schools is, on average, 4.2 times more expensive than their public equivalents.

There are 256 colleges which offer applied mathematics. This number of colleges is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other applied mathematics undergrads, consider colleges in California which have more students admitted to applied mathematics than any other state. More generally, the best region to pursue applied mathematics is in the Far West region with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of California-San Diego best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick for the top conference to major in applied mathematics is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Southern California representing the conference. That said, our choice for the best college for applied mathematics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The overall best school does not have to be the 'best' school for you. There might be many more perspectives to weigh when deciding on school. Things like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could definitely modify one's inclinations on where to go to school. At Authority, we have weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which applied mathematics university boasts the top campus, the winner is Harvard University. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which college is home to the finest campus, we have a whole page dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more so we can compare every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. You can explore our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life here and our pick of the college with the best student life for applied mathematics is University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Are you curious why? Continue reading to learn more about Authority's top selections. Many of our picks will probably surprise you.

If price is a primary factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York appears to be our most expensive college for applied mathematics, at least regarding out of state students. That being said, we have a page for the most expensive schools that might put the price tag at Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. For more context, you might care to know that applied mathematics is the 64th most expensive major in the nation, with an average bill of $44,900. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for applied mathematics in the country is Maryland with expenses at the primary two colleges Johns Hopkins University and Loyola University Maryland of $55,350 and $48,700 respectively. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the country for applied mathematics is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Yale University with a cost of $55,500, Tufts University with a cost of $57,324, and Brown University with a cost of $57,112.

Our cheapest region for applied mathematics is the Plains region which is represented by Metropolitan State University with a cost of $14,345, Missouri University of Science and Technology with a cost of $27,921, and South Dakota School of Mines and Technology with a cost of $11,920. In better news, the most affordable university for applied mathematics is Stony Brook University. Our entire list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state students can anticipate paying around $11,000 for a degree in applied mathematics. The cost balloons substantially to a median of $27,000 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. Our choice for the university constituting the best value for applied mathematics: Massachusetts Institute of Technology. On this page you will see our comprehensive list for the schools we see as being the best value in general. That being said, this discussion is based on out-of-state tuition costs. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for applied mathematics students vary a lot, but two years after completing the major students will regularly earn around $67,900. While there is a lot of variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can rake in up to $128,700. Right out of school, the lowest end opportunities within the applied mathematics field earn $34,900, which could be worse. The highest earning grads for applied mathematics have come from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of applied mathematics is quite high, coming within the 82nd percentile of majors nationally. The college with the highest composite diversity for applied mathematics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology and here you can find our general list for the schools which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Applied Mathematics major ranks only in the 47th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 75th percentile. Students who are not latino, asian, white, or black compose the largest share at 49% of scholars studying applied mathematics. Additionally, 61% of undergraduates seeking an applied mathematics major are men.

The median rating of applied mathematics professors is 3.8 stars, a rating that is 5% worse than the median score across every major; which is a subpar ranking. If you want the most popular applied mathematics instructor in the country, consider looking up Andrew Burch at Estrella Mountain Community College. It may come as a surprise, but the best ranked professors for applied mathematics by student come from Miami Dade College. If we including data beyond basic rankings we find that the school possessing comprehensively the best professors for applied mathematics is Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top examples of professors in the U.S.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for applied mathematics is Stanford University. While we do not necessarily see the value in it, we do have an extensive page of the hardest colleges to get into. But, we hope you believe that approaching college through a lens only derived from superlatives could be said to be the root of many of higher education's fundamental problems. We hope you look at some of our more nuanced pages on different schools and explore some of our background 'blog posts' on important things to look for as you continue your college search.
