The Graduate Certificate in Applied Mathematics will enable students and professional scientists to obtain an advanced training in various areas of applied mathematics through a program of required and elective coursework at the graduate level. The required coursework is drawn from the core curriculum of the Program in Applied Mathematics and the broad range of electives will enable them to develop mathematical expertise in application areas useful to their professional development. The certificate is primarily aimed at the professional community outside the University (e.g. employees in local companies). The certificate will provide additional professional qualifications to assist in their career development, and will help foster closer relations with the University. A successful Certificate experience may also encourage such professionals to enroll in the MS and PhD degrees in Applied Mathematics. Since the Certificate courses are at the graduate level a strong background in undergraduate mathematics courses is required.

The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs. GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of Arizona's enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.
