MS in Applied Mathematics

The Applied Mathematics MS program is unique and flexible, allowing students to tailor their program to their interests.

MS Program Requirements

This 30-point program leads to a Master of Science degree. Students must complete five core courses and five electives. A candidate is required to maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average. See the SEAS Bulletin for more details.

MS students must complete the Professional Development and Leadership Course, ENGI E4000, as a graduation requirement.

If a student admitted to the Applied Mathematics MS only program is interested in the PhD program, the student must re-apply for admission.
