Certificate in Applied Mathematics
The Applied Mathematics Certificate is designed to offer students who have completed the calculus sequence* and have some programming experience** the opportunity to develop skills in applying mathematics.
* The calculus sequence (Calculus I-IV) is a prerequisite for most, but not all, of the upper-level mathematics courses.
** An introductory programming course such as Programming with Python (U20 Math 133) is sufficient preparation.
Our advisors go the extra mile to help you navigate your path and needs. We will provide you with the tools to make each moment spent on your education as valuable as possible. Students will receive:
- one-on-one, hour long appointments with an experienced advisor;
- career planning services to prepare you for opportunities after graduation;
- a partner throughout your journey to ensure success.
Schedule an Appointment
Student advising is available at our West Campus location from 9 a.m.–5 p.m., Monday–Friday, and at our Danforth Campus location from 2–6 p.m., Monday–Thursday, and 9 a.m.–1 p.m. on Friday.
required course work
Students must complete five upper-level (300-400) mathematics courses, of which at least one must be Differential Equations I (U20 301) or Matrix Algebra (U20 309). Both courses may be completed to fulfill the certificate requirements.
There are no formal requirements for admission to undergraduate certificates. Students should speak with an academic advisor regarding their preparation for specific certificates or courses.
University College cannot sponsor an I-20 for any certificate program. International students are eligible to apply for a certificate program if they already hold a visa that permits part-time study. International students holding a B-2 or F-2 visa are only permitted to register for courses that are recreational or avocational.
The online application is available online on our Apply page. Applications are ready for review when all fields on the application form are completed.
