Combined Degree in Applied Mathematics (MS)

The tools of Applied Mathematics are applicable wherever quantitative data is used for strategic decision-making. The combined degree program in Applied Mathematics is designed to provide undergraduate students with the quantitative background they need in order to apply those tools in their chosen career. The program also provides a solid foundation for students interested in pursuing a PhD-level graduate work in applied mathematics.

Combined Degree Program Admission Criteria

Students applying for admission to the combined degree program in Applied Mathematics should have already completed the following undergraduate coursework:

  • One year of single-variable calculus (e.g., MAT 150-151-152, or equivalent)
  • Two quarters of multivariable calculus (MAT 260 and MAT 261)
  • One quarter of linear algebra (MAT 262)
  • A course in logic and proofs (MAT 215 or both MAT 140 and MAT 141)
  • At least one quarter of computer programming (e.g., Python, Java, C++)

Students who are interested in applying to the combined degree program in Applied Mathematics but who do not meet these requirements should consult with the Applied Mathematics Graduate Program Director Ilie Ugarcovici (iugarcov@depaul.edu).​​​​​

Application Instructions
