Graduate Program

The Department of Applied Mathematics offers master's and doctoral programs in applied mathematics, as well as a master's program in scientific computing and applied mathematics, and a designated emphasis in scientific computing.

The goal of the Applied Mathematics graduate program is to help students develop into independent scholars who are prepared for productive careers in research, teaching, and industry. The Master of Science (M.S.) degree may be used as a terminal degree or as the first step toward the associated Doctor of Philosophy degree (Ph.D.).

The goal of the SciCAM M.S. program is primarily to prepare students interested in scientific computing for productive careers in industry. However, it also serves as excellent preparation for students who prefer to pursue an academic career and wish to transfer into a Ph.D. program later, either in scientific computing/applied mathematics, or in a field related to their undergraduate degree.
