Faculty and students at the University of Washington Applied Math Department are exploring applications in the fields of neuroscience, medical imaging, evolutionary biology, mathematical ecology, oceanography, physics and economics, among others using computational and analytical methods. Whatever current scientific area is of interests to you, applied mathematics offers you the tools to use the mathematical framework underlying that area to better our understanding of specific problems.Our students graduate with the knowledge, the experience, and the ability to be leaders in a society that exhibits increasing demands for competence in communication, computation, and quantitative analysis. Applied mathematics encompasses some of the most diverse and interdisciplinary research in the physical, engineering, and biological sciences, which is what is needed in order to address the problems that we face today and in our future.
Core course list Students are required to take all three of AMATH 567 (Applied Analysis), AMATH 568 (Ordinary Differential Equations) and AMATH 569 (Partial Differential Equations). Substitution of any of these courses with AMATH 501, AMATH 502 and AMATH 503, respectively, is permitted. Either AMATH 581 (Scientific Computation) or AMATH 584 (Numerical Analysis 1) is also required.

USA requirements for international students

Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.

Program requirements

Applicants are required to submit verbal, analytical and quantitative scores from the general Graduate Record Examination (GRE). HOWEVER, if you have earned a graduate degree from an accredited institution in the United States, you may be exempt from the GRE requirement.All post-secondary transcriptsGRE General Test scores3 Letters of RecommendationCV or ResumeStatement of PurposeAssistantship and Fellowship Application English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 TOEFL paper-based test score : 580 TOEFL iBT® test: 92
