Masters in Applied Mathematics

After a student has earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, physics or engineering, with at least 24 upper division credits in mathematics from an accredited university, they become eligible for entering a Masters in Applied Mathematics program. At least 30 credits will be required beyond the bachelor’s degree level to earn this additional degree. A choice of two comprehensive examinations, a thesis and a project are offered to students going through the program. Some specific classes you will need to take include applied analysis, partial differential equations, mathematical modeling, scientific computing, calculus, and numerical linear algebra.

This is one of the best degrees to earn online. Since there is little or no hands-on experience required in such an analytical major, learning on your own without an instructor present or certain facilities available to you is easy with Applied Mathematics Master’s Programs. Of course, you are not left alone to complete coursework, but with an at-home internet connection, your living room can become your classroom. This level of convenience is impossible to obtain with a traditional classroom setting, where the school defines the hours you attend class and the pace at which you complete coursework. Work in the most flexible environment imaginable when you earn your degree online.

There are almost limitless career possibilities when it comes to choosing a job after graduating with an applied mathematics degree. You could like working as a climate analyst, modeling long-term changes in global weather, or you could work as a forensic analyst, investigating the data collected from crime scenes. Then, there are ecologist positions where you could work to prevent certain species from becoming endangered. Most government jobs, including national labs, NIST, and the Department of Agriculture are within applied mathematics.
