Graduate Program

The Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics has a large, diverse program of graduate studies leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.  Students have five different tracks to choose from.

Each track has its own set of required courses and its own qualifying exams for Ph.D. students.

 The M.S. degree requires a minimum of 10 courses consisting of required courses in one of the tracks plus free electives. Click on the track links above for their course requirements.

 The Ph.D. degree has no explicitly required courses.  However each track’s required M.S. courses are normally taken by Ph.D. students as preparation for the Ph.D. qualifying exams and for subsequent doctoral research.
