Introducing the new MS in Applied Mathematics

Posted in: Program News, The Graduate School

Applied Mathematics at Montclair State

The Mathematical Sciences Department is pleased to announce a newly developed Applied Mathematics (MS) program starting Fall 2019. No GRE is required!

Our affordable program provides students with theoretical and computational knowledge of modern applied mathematics as well as in-depth specialized abilities and skills tailored to their specific goals. Full-time students can complete the 30-credit flexible curriculum in 16 months:

  • Four core courses introduce the latest techniques in data-driven modeling and stochastic processes.
  • Option to specialize in a particular sub-discipline of applied mathematics: dynamical  systems,  financial  mathematics,  fluid mechanics, geophysical mathematics, imaging, mathematical biology, mathematical epidemiology,  numerical  analysis,  and  scientific  computing.
  • One of three culminating options: an internship, a capstone project, or a thesis.

The Applied Mathematics (MS) program is relevant to many “in-demand” careers that span across a wide variety of industries and roles in business, government and education for which the analytic capacities of applied mathematics are highly sought after.

Register now for an Applied Math MS Information Session on Monday, June 17th at 5:30 PM to learn more about this program and the application process. If you are unable to come on campus, Dr. Eric Forgoston will host an Applied Math MS Webinar on July 18th at 1:00 PM. You can also apply to the Applied Mathematics (MS) now.

Additionally, we now offer a MS in Mathematics. This is a theoretical program that will provide a mathematical foundation for students who plan to continue in further graduate studies, those interested in industry, as well as in-service teachers seeking a deeper knowledge of their field. Core courses include Real Variables, Linear Algebra, Abstract Algebra, Probability, with elective courses in theoretical mathematics including number theory, topology, and graph theory. Students will choose one of the following options for a culminating experience: capstone project, or MS thesis.
