# Master of Science in Applied Mathematics

This program is a professional mathematics degree designed to prepare students for work in a variety of areas, including business and industry. Program graduates will be proficient in the use of modern analytic and computational tools and will have experience in modeling and solving problems of a practical nature.

**Admission. **An applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university, in a suitable discipline, e.g., mathematics, computer science, engineering, or science, with a 3.0 grade point average in the major field of undergraduate study. Undergraduate courses required for official acceptance are Multivariable Calculus, Ordinary Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra plus six credit hours of further mathematics beyond Calculus. Some programming experience and an acceptable score on the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination are also required.

**Requirements. **A student who has been fully admitted to the Graduate School first meets with the Graduate Advisor for Mathematics to plan a program of study through to the completion of the degree. The program is subject to change by mutual consent, but a current version remains on file. Students must gain 30 credit hours by enrollment in approved courses, which include all 7000-level mathematics courses offered by the department and certain other courses subject to approval by the graduate advisor, No more than 12 credit hours of 6000-level course work will be counted toward the graduate degree. Up to six credit hours of coursework outside the Department of Mathematics, approved by the graduate advisor, may counted toward the degree.
