Computational mathematics is the 344th most popular degree in America, with 232 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #345 Ethnic Studies, and narrowly lost to #343 Clinical Psychology.

The degree is offered at a total of 23 colleges across the nation, and is the 368th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 5% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 1 in 2 colleges offering computational mathematics are public making it a pretty accessible field.

The far west produces the most computational mathematics graduates, largely led by California Institute of Technology, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from California Institute of Technology and University of California-Davis.

All that being said, no individual school produces more computational mathematics graduates than University of California-San Diego, which graduated 46 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study computational mathematics). More students studied computational mathematics as a percentage of total students at California Institute of Technology than any other college.
