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. Check individual course descriptions to confirm prerequisites.

**An introductory programming course such as Math 133 Programming with Python is sufficient preparation.
