The Master of Arts in Applied Mathematics comprises a flexible program of coursework in mathematics beyond the bachelor's degree emphasizing areas relevant to applications in the sciences (including engineering, biological, financial and physical sciences). There is no thesis requirement or option. Students in the applied mathematics Ph.D. program can apply for this M.A. degree after completing the requisite number of credit hours.
M.A. and M.S.: Official transcript(s), goal statement, three letters of recommendation and résumé or vita. Students applying for either master's degree are not required to have an undergraduate degree in applied mathematics; however, they are expected to have proficiency in numerical analysis and statistics at the level of Introduction to Statistical Concepts (MATH 40012) and Introduction to Numerical Computing II (MATH 42202). They are also expected to have taken computer science coursework equivalent to Computer Science I-Programming and Problem Solving (CS 13001). Those who do not meet these specific requirements may be granted conditional admission by the Graduate Studies Committee.
M.A. and M.S.: The Master of Arts and Master of Science programs require a total of 32 semester hours of graduate credit. Each student should submit a detailed plan of study for approval by the advisor by the time the first 16 semester hours of graduate credit have been completed.
This examination will be a comprehensive examination in the field of the major subject, and will be a substantially deeper test than the qualifying examination.
