A Sample Program of Study - Applied Mathematics

A selection of classes for the first year is determined in large part by the screening/qualifying exams. Please first check the brochure "Graduate Exams Information" (click on Brochures).
Until you have a formal advisor, you are expected to consult with the Graduate Vice-Chair for Applied Mathematics before the start of each semester regarding the classes you wish to take.
