Applied Mathematics - M.A. and M.S. Program Requirements PDFDownload to print

The following two sequences are required:

  • MATH 6/70061 and 6/70062
  • MATH 6/72251 and 6/72252

At least 20 semester hours must be in MATH or CS courses at the 60000 level or above. Only 3 of the 6 hours of thesis will be counted toward the 20 semester hours at the 60000 level. The remaining 12 semester hours can be taken from graduate-level coursework in MATH or CS.

With permission of the advisor, up to 12 semester hours of 50000-level MATH and/or CS courses may be applied toward the total required for the degree. Candidates who do not have an undergraduate degree in applied mathematics should include MATH 52031 and 52045 in their program.

Master of Arts degree candidates must pass the departmental qualifying examination at the master’s level in numerical analysis, probability or statistics, and one additional area chosen from among the areas listed for master’s programs.

While students entering the master’s program in applied mathematics are not required to have an undergraduate degree in applied mathematics, they are expected to have proficiency in numerical analysis and statistics at the level of MATH 40012-Introduction to Statistical Concepts and MATH 42202-Introduction to Numerical Computing II. They are also expected to have taken computer science coursework equivalent to CS 13001-Computer Science I: Programming and Problem Solving. Those who do not meet these specific requirements may be granted conditional admission by the Graduate Studies Committee.
