Information for Applicants

The Program in Applied Mathematics is one of 3 academic units offering graduate degrees in Mathematical Sciences at the University of Arizona. The others are the Statistics and Data Science Graduate Interdisciplinary Program and the Graduate Program in Mathematics. Watch a video about the Program in Applied Mathematics and request more information about the Program in Applied Mathematics here.

The Program in Applied Mathematics is a broad-based interdisciplinary program offering the PhD degree in applied mathematics (an MS degree is also a possibility, decided individually). The aim of the Program is to train students in contemporary applied mathematics, which includes the development of mathematical models, computational, theoretical, and data-driven tools to solve real world problems in physical, engineering, biological and social sciences. 

We are looking for students who are passionate about mathematics and various applications of mathematics and have a strong track record (courses) in undergraduate Mathematics. However, one does not need to have B.Sc. in Mathematics to be admitted to the Program. In fact, many of our students enter the Program with undergraduate degrees in physical, natural sciences or engineering disciplines.
