A Master of Science or MSc is generally a two-year advanced degree that serves as a follow-up to a Bachelor of Science. This advanced degree, offered in many countries, typically focuses on studies in the sciences, as opposed of a Master of Arts.

What is an MSc in Applied Mathematics? Applied mathematics is a specific branch of mathematics that deals with practical methods as they are applied to specific fields. Students who pursue this degree may expect to study topics such as how math relates to fields as diverse as computer science, industry, business, engineering and science. You may also learn to apply mathematic principles to practical problems by studying and formulating mathematical models that answer questions relating to economics, game theory and other areas.

An MSc in Applied Mathematics can be useful in that you go beyond theoretical work in math and explore real-world applications, understanding how math affects our lives. In addition to learning principles like statistical analysis, you can expect to expand your problem-solving and organizational skills, all important for future careers and in life.

As with any academic degree, the financial cost of an MSc in Applied Mathematics can vary greatly from program to program. As you research specific programs, cost is certainly one factor to consider.

One benefit of an MSc in Applied Mathematics is that it may open up a wide variety of career options. With this degree, you may find a job as a computer scientist, statistician, operations manager or mathematical economist. Because applied mathematics is very much a practical study, it can complement the careers of engineers, chemists, biologists and laboratory researchers.

There are a number of institutions that offer an MSc in Applied Mathematics, so you have many programs from which to choose. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The Master of Science (MS) program in applied mathematics features mathematics courses developed to prepare candidates for working in business or government agencies or pursuing further graduate studies. By applying techniques taught in these courses to business, engineering, planning and other areas, significant problems can be studied using analytic, statistical, and numerical methods. To graduate, candidates must pass two comprehensive exams in their last semester. For those candidates considering more advanced graduate studies, a thesis option is available in lieu of comprehensive exams to expose candidates to research methods in applied mathematics. [+]

Applied mathematics is the language of science, engineering, and fields beyond. Just as English is spoken by more non-native speakers than by native, mathematics is used daily by more non-mathematicians than by mathematicians. A Master's Degree in Applied Mathematics is an ideal career complement to nearly any practicing or aspiring researcher in quantitative domains.
