Applied Mathematics

Applied Mathematics is the discipline of discovering, applying, and promoting the use of mathematics to model and solve practical problems in many disciplines, ranging from physical sciences and biology to medicine and business. At UW, the Department of Applied Mathematics provides a broad curriculum of undergraduate and graduate study, and service courses for students from many other departments. Through classes and individual faculty mentoring, students learn to model phenomena mathematically and to develop combined analytical and computational approaches for problem solving. The program has received national and international acclaim, including being tied as the top applied mathematics program in the country by the National Research Council (2010).

Degrees offered: BS, Applied Mathematics; BS, Computational Finance & Risk Management; interdisciplinary BS in Applied and Computational Mathematical Sciences(ACMS); Masters, Applied Mathematics; PhD, Applied Mathematics and Computational Molecular Biology
