Masters Programs in Applied Mathematics

Compare 14 Masters Programs in Applied Mathematics

A master's degree is a postgraduate qualification, usually taking two to four years to obtain. These programs often set a bachelor's degree or equivalent coursework as a prerequisite for entry.

What is a Master in Applied Mathematics? These are often rigorous mathematical programs with a goal of preparing students to utilize complex modeling and analysis tools in the service of business, science and government. One might expect to encounter required classes in finance, climate modeling, optimization and computing. There are also often courses in topics such as vector calculus, partial differential equations and complex variables. Due to the range of relevant topics available, students might expect to choose from a variety of electives in the engineering, mathematics and science departments to fulfill the credit hour requirements. A master's degree with this focus might take around three years to complete.

Together, the applied and theoretical aspects of these programs often combine to equip students with the tools necessary to solve complex and relevant problems in engineering, science and various other applications. The mental rigor and organizational skills developed might also assist graduates in nearly every aspect of their lives.

Applied mathematics programs have different costs based on a variety of factors. Location of the school is one possible cause for tuition disparity, while coursework is another.

Applied mathematicians might find employment servicing a variety of industry sectors as data scientists. These positions often require individuals to bring a large number of data processing, computing and modeling techniques to bear on expansive data sets. A successful candidate for this position might find that the knowledge acquired during a degree program prepared him or her for the challenge of interpreting structured and unstructured information.

Obtaining a Master in Applied Mathematics starts with finding a school that fits your requirements. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
