M.S. Program Requirements
This 30-point program leads to a Master of Science degree. Students must complete five core courses and five electives. All degree requirements must be completed within five years. A candidate is required to maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average.
If a student admitted to the Applied Mathematics M.S. only program is interested in the Ph.D. program, the student must re-apply for admission.
- APMA E4001: Principles of applied mathematics
- APMA E4200: Partial differential equations
- APMA E4204: Functions of a complex variable
APMA E4300: Introduction to numerical methods
- APMA E4301: Numerical methods for partial differential equations
- APMA E6301: Analytic methods for partial differential equations
APMA E6302: Numerical analysis for partial differential equations
- Students must also take a required Research Seminar course, APMA E6100 x or y
A student must select five elective courses from those listed below (or any of those not used to satisfy the core requirements from the list above) for a total of 15 points of graduate credit. Additional courses not listed below can be applied toward the elective requirements, subject to the approval of the faculty adviser. *
* Courses from the Department of Economics, School of Business, School of International and Public Affairs, or quantitative courses offered by the School of Professional Studies may not be counted as electives toward the degree.
