Applied Mathematics Master's Program

Note: The Applied Math Master's Program is not to be confused with AIM – information on AIM can be found here.

There are two options in this program. One option is a program concentrating in classical applied mathematics, differential equations, and/or numerical analysis and scientific computing; the second focuses on the mathematics of optimization, or on stochastic processes. Each option has a minimum requirement of twenty-four credit hours of course work that includes two cognate courses. In addition, a program under the first option must satisfy conditions 1, 2 and 3, and a program under the second option must satisfy conditions, 1, 2* and 3.

1.

The following two courses must be included in the program unless equivalent courses have already been completed; Math 420 and 452. The program must also include one course at or above the 500 level not in analysis (including probability) or classical applied mathematics. Examples at the 500 level of the latter type of course include: Math 531, 532, 535, 565, 566, 567, 575, 582, 590, 591, 592, 593, and 594.

2.

The program must include five courses from Group A below. At least one of these five
courses must be chosen from Group B.
 

A: Math 420, 452, 454, 490 or 590, 525, 526, 555, 556, 557, 558, 565, 566, 571, 572, 593, 594, 596, 597, 651, 652, 654, 655, 656, 658, 663, 671, 756, or other counselor approved courses.

 

B: Math 651, 654, 655, 656, 658, 671, 756.

2*.

The program must include five courses from Group A* below. At least one of these
course must be chosen from Group B*
 

A*: Math 420, 452, 454, 525, 526, 555, 561, 562, 565, 566, 571, 572, 490 or 590, 593, 596, 597, 625, 626, 663, 773, or other counselor approved courses, possibly including at most two statistics courses at or above the 500 level.

 

B*: Math 596, 597, 625, 626, 663, 773.

3.

Two cognate courses at the graduate level must be included in the program. These may be elected from other special areas of mathematics or from other fields. The courses chosen must be related to the student’s mathematics program.
