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 in the Courses section of this page to confirm prerequisites.

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

## Certificate in Applied Mathematics

The undergraduate Applied Mathematics Certificate is earned by completing six upper-level (300-400) mathematics courses (18 credit units total), of which at least one must be Math 301 Differential Equations I or Math 309 Linear Algebra I. Both courses may be completed to fulfill the certificate requirements.
