Master of Science in Applied Mathematics
The Master of Science in Applied Mathematics degree program provides a broad background in the fundamentals of the advanced mathematics that is applied to solve problems in other fields. The goal is to prepare students for careers in industry and for the doctoral program, and students may pursue an optional thesis.
|A minimum grade point average of 3.0/4.0 is required in the core courses.|
|MATH 500||Applied Analysis I||3|
|MATH 577||Computational Mathematics I||3|
|Select a minimum of one course from the following:||3|
|Discrete Applied Mathematics I||3|
|MATH 593||Seminar in Applied Mathematics 1||0|
|Select 15-23 credit hours 2||15-23|
|MATH 591||Research and Thesis M.S. 3||0-8|
Minimum degree credits required: 32
Students must take the colloquium/seminar course MATH 593 at least twice with a satisfactory grade.
The remaining courses in each student’s program are selected in consultation with, and approval of, the director of graduate studies. The program may include at most three courses at the 400-level and at most two courses outside the department.
Research students pursuing the thesis option must complete 5 to 8 credit hours of MATH 591.
The comprehensive examination requirement is fulfilled by a master's thesis (5-8 credit hours of MATH 591) under the supervision of a faculty member, or by passing written tests in two of the five core areas of study at the master of science level.
