Concentrations in ACME
Students are required to complete a concentration in one of the fields below, or with ACME Board permission, a customized track. A concentration usually consists of four to five courses in the application area of your choice. Your junior and senior core classes/labs are designed to strengthen your mathematical and computational skills, while your concentration provides the application. Concentrations allow students to see how mathematical ideas are used in other disciplines and help develop specialized knowledge and practical skills in your chosen area of study.
After deciding on a concentration, please immediately declare your concentration by emailing Brooke Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org) (1) the concentration you plan to complete, (2) your net id, and (3) if your concentration has electives, which electives you plan to take. She can then build your concentration into MyMap. Your concentration must be built into MyMap before you can graduate. Concentration requirements are subject to change, so you should declare your concentration and get it built into MyMap as soon as possible. If needed, it is possible to change your choice of concentration or electives later.
We encourage you to continue to take classes that prepare you for your desired career. However, once you complete a concentration, it is recommended that you have that concentration recorded on MyMap even if you are working toward the requirements of a different concentration. The concentration does not show up on your diploma, so there is no need to delay officially completing the concentration requirement.
