Master of Arts in Applied Mathematics

The M.A. in applied mathematics is designed for students who are interested in applying mathematics to areas outside of mathematics (e.g., biology, chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, geology, medical science, physics, psychology, social science).

The program is flexible in that it does not represent the teaching of any fixed body of knowledge. It does require two areas of concentration, one of these being the major in mathematics (pure and applied) with emphasis on the applicable subjects. The minor area is to be either in applied mathematics or in an area outside of mathematics (such as the above) to which the student is interested in applying mathematics. Mathematical methods are emphasized.
