M.S. in Mathematics: Applied Mathematics

AdmissionsCoursesStudent Resources

The graduate curriculum seeks to develop a broad and balanced perspective in the mathematical sciences, covering both the traditional areas of pure mathematics and the many interdisciplinary fields in applied mathematics. Students are encouraged to develop a deep understanding in any chosen area of pure mathematics to enable them to pursue a career in either academic or non-academic settings.

Applied Mathematics Course Requirements

For students in applied mathematics, the plan of study must include:

Four math courses from the following list:
Ordinary Differential Equations, Complex Analysis, Real Analysis & Measure Theory, Linear Algebra, Partial Differential Equations, Functional Analysis, Probability

Four applied math courses from the following list:
Ordinary Differential Equations, Applied Computational Methods I, Applied Computational Methods II, Mathematical Modeling I, Mathematical Modeling II*

The remaining two courses are electives and should be chosen with the approval of the student's advisor.

* or a life sciences modeling course
