Core Course Requirements

Applied and Computational Mathematics at Florida State University

ACM students are encouraged to attend Department seminars and take courses throughout their graduate study in Mathematics. These include required core courses, courses supporting admission to candidacy, courses supporting your dissertation research, and courses, both advanced and basic, intended to broaden ACM students' applied and computational mathematics expertise.

The core of the ACM curriculum comprises 3 two-semester course sequences. These sequences provide a rigorous basic background and a basis upon which advanced courses and research can build. Students must satisfy the ACM Core Course Requirement by passing, with a grade of C- or better, the FCM, MAM and APDE sequences Students with an advanced background may satisfy the ACM Core Course Requirement with related advanced courses as approved by the ACM Director.
