The Harvard College Applied Mathematics Society (HAMS) is dedicated to bringing AM concentrators and students interested in AM together in a welcoming and active community, through both social and academic events. We aim to promote the research and application of mathematics through education, recognition and relationship-building between peers, professors and career professionals. We encourage exploration at the interface of mathematics and a diverse set of fields, bringing together students of all quantitative disciplines. We work closely with the AM department, and serve as a liaison between AM students and SEAS.
Are you interested in economics, computer science, biology, chemistry, statistics, or linguistics, yet also want to study advanced mathematics? The Applied Mathematics concentration at Harvard College allows you to combine your mathematical skills with one or two specific areas of application, providing a unique opportunity for students to bring together their academic interests and do highly interdisciplinary work.
Throughout the fall semester, HAMS will be hosting several events aimed at informing sophomores about the Applied Math concentration. We want all potential concentrators to be fully prepared for the AM course track, and these events are opportunities for sophomores to ask for advice from their peers and AM faculty about the future academic course-load, opportunities within the department, as well as getting to know the community.
