Degree Requirements

The master's program in Applied Mathematics offers degrees in four areas of concentration: Actuarial Science, Applied and Computational Mathematics, Mathematical Finance, and Statistics.

Degree Requirements

Course Requirements

Candidates for the degree must complete at least 48 quarter hours of graduate level work in applied mathematics. 

Concentration Requirement​

Applied Mathematics students must choose one concentration: Actuarial Science, Statistics, Applied and Computational Mathematics, or Mathematical Finance.

Computer Usage​

The department places strong emphasis on computation and is well supported with equipment and software necessary for research. Computers are used for data analysis and to find solutions to problems that arise in numerical analysis, simulations, and mathematical modeling. The computer packages used in these courses are likely to play an important role in the solution of the problems students will encounter in their places of employment.
