APMA/Biology

Areas of Emphasis and Suggested Courses

Some areas of possible emphasis for focusing of elective courses are listed below.  Given the large number of course offerings in the biosciences and neuroscience, students are free to explore classes in these areas that are not listed below.  However, all classes must be appropriated by the concentration advisor.

Although concentration advisors for AM/Bio concentrators are from the Division of Applied Mathematics, faculty from Biology are available to all AM/Bio students for advising on biology courses & course planning, research in the Division of Biology & Medicine, biology related planning for after Brown, etc.  AM/Bio concentrators can sign up for advising using the BUE Advising Calendar.

APMA-CS and APMA-ECON Professional Tracks

Johnny GuzmanAPMA-CS and APMA-ECON students who are in the professional tracks are required to do two summers of internships in areas related to their concentration in order to fulfill the concentration requirements.  The CPT Internship Form should be filled in as completely as possible.  Once you have entered all of the relevant information, please ask your concentration advisor to sign it.  Once signed, please bring this application to the Office of International and Student Scholar Services (OISSS).
