Note: As of August 1, 2021, we are no longer accepting students into this program.
The Applied Mathematics Certificate is designed to offer students who have completed the calculus sequence* and who 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.
Certificate in Applied Mathematics
The undergraduate Applied Mathematics Certificate is earned by completing five upper-level (300- and 400-level) mathematics courses (15 credit units total), of which at least one must be Math 301 Differential Equations or Math 3091 Matrix Algebra. Both courses may be completed to fulfill the certificate requirements.
Required Courses: 3 units
