MS in Applied and Computational Mathematics
The MS in applied and computational mathematics is a Master's program aimed at providing the graduate with the skills needed to deal with problems which typically arise in science, business, and industrial situations.
General Course Requirements
- A minimum of 35 credit hours of course work
- Math and outside courses at the 300 level and below will not be counted towards the 35 hour requirement. MATH 530 does not count toward the 35 credit hour requirement.
- A minimum of 24 credit hours taken on campus
- A minimum of 9 of the 35 hours taken in an area of application outside mathematics (such as physics, biology, engineering, etc.) including at least 3 credit hours of statistics. The area and courses must be approved by the graduate student's advisor.
- 6 hours of course work taken outside the department must be at the 500 level or above.
- A minimum of 18 credit hours of coursework in mathematics at the 500 level or above (excluding MATH x99).
- The Seminar requirement must be satisfied, a maximum of 2 credits may be counted toward the 35 credit hour degree requirement.
