The 37-credit Master of Science degree program in Applied Mathematics offers specializations in either Classical Mathematics or Computer Mathematics. Classical Mathematics focuses on the foundations of modern mathematical theory, covering linear algebra, numerical methods and complex analysis. Computer Mathematics combines the fields of mathematics and technology through courses such as logic and information, applications of analysis, linear programming and statistics. Students must complete either a thesis or a prepare a topic in mathematics and deliver a lecture on that topic.
The faculty members in the Department of Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics are experts in areas such as topological groups, probability theory, differential geometry, number theory, dynamical systems and computer graphics, real analysis, numerical analysis, abstract algebra, combinatorics and history of mathematics.
Many of our graduates have gone on to receive Ph.D.’s from prestigious institutions. LIU Post graduates also are qualified for rewarding positions in actuarial science, insurance, finance, engineering, manufacturing and education.
