Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics

The Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics will enable students and professional scientists to obtain an advanced training in various areas of applied mathematics through a program of required and elective coursework at the graduate level. The required coursework is drawn from the core curriculum of the Program in Applied Mathematics and the broad range of electives will enable them to develop mathematical expertise in application areas useful to their professional development. For more information please use our UA Graduate College Request for Information form.

The certificate is primarily aimed at the professional community outside the University (e.g. employees in local companies). The certificate will provide additional professional qualifications to assist in their career development, and will help foster closer relations with the University. A successful Certificate experience may also encourage such professionals to enroll in the MS and PhD degrees in Applied Mathematics. Since the Certificate courses are at the graduate level a strong background in undergraduate mathematics courses is required.

Required Coursework:

Minimum credits: 12 with a minimum of 3 units from:
Math/Appl Math 581 A/B: Methods of Applied Mathematics
Math/Appl Math 584 A/B: Theoretical Foundations of Applied Mathematics
Math/Appl Math 589 A/B: Algorithms of Applied Mathematics 

Language requirements: None.
Other requirements: Completion of an additional 9 units from a list of approved electives. Final course selection must be approved by the Head of the Program.

The GPA of all courses to be counted toward the Certificate must be greater than 3.0. No course may be taken more than once.
