Students develop expertise in applied mathematics, and supplement math courses with courses in other fields. Biology, chemistry, computer science, and engineering are integrated with mathematic theory. Majors go on to attend graduate schools like MIT, Notre Dame, and Carnegie Mellon, and have successful careers in business, science, government, engineering and education. Carroll teams have placed as "Outstanding" (the top 1%) three times in the international Interdisciplinary Contest in Modeling in the past nine years.
