Masters Program (Professional)


Creating problem solvers

The Master’s of Science in Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics (MS-ACMS) program trains students to solve complex real-world problems with statistical, mathematical and computational modeling.


A student in the MS-ACMS program will complete 30 credits of coursework in statistics, applied mathematics or computational science. Our courses are specially designed for solving problems faced by companies today. A student may specialize in Applied Statistics, Applied and Computational Mathematics, or Predictive Analytics. The degree requirements, described here, are flexible enough to accommodate broad student interests, while ensuring that students graduate with deep knowledge of the subject matter.


Options for terms of attendance

The MS-ACMS program offers a student the option to complete the program in 10 months of continuous study, or distributed over 16 months. See here for the details. The 10-month option is ideal for a student who may have completed an internship as an undergraduate and is eager to enter the workforce as soon as possible.  Under the 16-month option, a student could hold an internship during the summer between the program’s 2nd and 3rd semester of study, and apply for jobs after a full year of study in the program.
