# Master in mathematics with a concentration in applied mathematics

This program requires a minimum of 24 semester hours plus a thesis or a minimum of 36 hours without a thesis.

## Background Requirements

The following undergraduate courses are required, each with at least a "C" grade, and no more than two courses with "C":

- MATH 3323
*Differential Equations* - MATH 3373
*Calculus III* - MATH 3376/3377
*Linear Algebra* - MATH 3380
*Analysis I* - MATH 3383
*Numerical Analysis* - MATH 4315
*Analysis II*

These requirements may be reduced if the applicant shows evidence of taking equivalent courses elsewhere. Students are required to make up background courses if they do not have sufficient undergraduate mathematics. This background work must be completed before enrolling in graduate courses.
