Program Description:

The graduate program in applied mathematics is based on a solid foundation in pure mathematics, which includes the fundamentals of algebra and analysis. It involves a grounding in the methods of applied mathematics and studies of scientific areas in which significant applications of mathematics are made. The field has a broadly based interdepartmental faculty that can direct student programs in a large number of areas of the mathematical sciences.

Many specialized or interdisciplinary programs can be designed for individual students, including, for example, a variety of possibilities in biomathematics.

Candidates for the Ph.D. degree must demonstrate reading knowledge of French, German, or Russian. The dissertation is normally a mathematical contribution toward the solution of a problem arising outside mathematics.
