The MathBio program trains students to create models and use data to address scientific and management questions. Students learn how to communicate with interdisciplinary audiences, conveying results of model construction, parameter determination, simulation evaluation, and system analysis. Students develop multi-disciplinary professional networks, participate in national/international conferences, and receive cross-disciplinary training. Research funding and internship experiences available!
Master's Degree, MS, Masters in Mathematics
Doctoral Degree, PhD, PhD in MathSciences, Interdisciplinary Option

The Mathematical Biology program is unique in being driven by questions and data from biology, ecology and environmental sciences. On a foundation of calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations we train students to develop, calibrate, simulate and analyze their own models in collaboration with disciplinary scientists. We look for creative, dynamic students with interdisciplinary interests who are excited to see mathematics answer questions in life sciences. Mathematical Biology MS applicants are expected to have taken calculus through multivariate, linear algebra and differential equations; evidence of excellence in technical subjects *using* mathematics is expected. PhD applicants need advanced training in relevant mathematics. Biological background is helpful but not necessary. Overall GPA must be over 3.0; we look for > 3.5 GPA in technical subjects. Preference is given to students with research experience and research overlap with faculty.
