  • Overview


The Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics is designed for students who are currently pursuing a graduate degree in a discipline outside of math (such as engineering, economics, physics, biology, geology, or psychology) who would benefit from additional training in applied mathematics.

The Certificate requires four graduate level courses (12 credits total) from the Department approved list. Admission to the certificate program requires completion of two math courses at level 600 or above with a minimum 3.0 GPA. These courses (if on the list) can then count towards the 12 credits required for the certificate. Students must be admitted to the Graduate Certificate program prior to completion of the final course for the certificate.

Once you have completed the coursework you must apply for graduation to signal that you have completed your certificate. After signing into Enroll & Pay, click on “Degree Progress/Graduation” followed by “KU Apply for Graduation.” It is also recommended that you notify the Department's graduate advisor: kate.pleskac@ku.edu.
