Applied Math undergrad to pure math grad school?

  1. Mar 30, 2013 #1
    The best instate college in my state for mathematics is Georgia Tech. However, it does not have a pure mathematics degree. Can I still go to grad school for pure mathematics as an applied math major? Will it prepare me for pure mathematics?

    The name of the degree doesn't really matter, just the courses, and Georgia Tech has plenty of courses in pure mathematics. You can essentially complete a pure math degree there, you just have to take a few extra applied courses on the side.

    GaTech is the best college in GA for mathematics,and having an undergrad in applied wont stop you from going to grad school for pure.
