This program is designed for those who seek enhanced employment opportunities in industry, government, or two-year college teaching, as well as those who desire to enter a doctoral program. Mathematics has always played an important role in understanding and predicting real-world phenomena, and that role has increased rapidly as many areas of technology and science have advanced in recent years. There has also been an increase in new areas of mathematics used to model these phenomena. A wealth of applications can be found in areas such as economics, biology, computation, social and management sciences, and engineering. The Department of Mathematics at the University of West Georgia has a strong contingent of faculty in applied areas. The program is designed to expose students to a broad range of mathematical subjects that are important in applied fields. The program includes (i) a set of core courses fundamental to the study of applied mathematics, (ii) a broad range of elective courses in several applied areas, and (iii) a research project class.
