Key Features

Since it was started in 1976, the Applied Mathematics degree from The University of Arizona  has grown in size and stature and is now a highly regarded interdisciplinary graduate program, both nationally and internationally. The great strength of the Program lies in its large body of distinguished faculty who come from many different academic disciplines in the mathematical, physical, biological, and engineering and social sciences. The breadth and depth of endeavor has created a vital and exciting environment in which to work. 

By coming to Tucson you are opening yourself up for many opportunities:

  • to feel the balance of theory, methods and algorithms in our core courses;
  • to become involved in research and teaching of modern applied mathematics from your first day on campus; 
  • to take specialized courses according to your interests and desires - in dynamical systems, complexity theory, bio-informatics, numerical analysis, machine learning, statistical mechanics or data science - as you need it in your research;
  • to get hands-on experience in research internships with many of our industrial and government lab partners; 
  • to choose an adviser from more than 100 professors teaching and advancing many areas of natural, engineering and social sciences through mathematics;
  • to follow, understand and change boundaries of modern applied mathematics through your research work and teaching;
  • to be well-positioned by the time of your graduation for many career options in academia, high-tech industry and national labs.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Mastery of the foundational undergraduate material, specifically  (a) multivariable calculus, (b) linear algebra and (c) differential equations.
  • Aptitude for higher level mathematics as demonstrated by a selection of courses in advanced applied mathematical coursework, for example numerical methods, dynamical systems, complex analysis, PDEs, probability, stochastic processes, statistics, optimization, algorithms and mathematical physics.  
  • Solid command of theoretical mathematics, normally achieved via a full year of analysis or advanced calculus (if acquired at the undergraduate level). 
  • Commitment to excellence in mathematical research, as demonstrated by a high-quality undergraduate project, master's thesis, or work experience.
