Solving difficult problems in science, engineering, and society, often requires the use of state-of-the-art applied mathematics. Students from other disciplines can vastly extend their analytic capabilities through the various courses we offer in the Applied Mathematics and Statistics department.
Thanks to the flexibility of our programs and the utility of our subject matter, students from other departments can enrich their education and professional credentials by enrolling in one of our joint programs and earning a second degree.
The Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department offers three joint programs for graduate students.
The Departments of Sociology and Applied Mathematics and Statistics offer a joint program leading to a doctorate in Sociology and a master’s in Applied Mathematics and Statistics. Interested students should apply to the Department of Sociology and indicate on their application that they wish to be considered for this joint program.
PhD Students in Applied Mathematics and Statistics can choose Computational Medicine as a Concentration as part of a program established in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University Institute for Computational Medicine. Details about this program are described on this page.
Many graduate students in other departments at Hopkins take courses from the Applied Mathematics and Statistics Department. Full-time students in a full-time JHU graduate program may apply to earn a master’s degree in Applied Mathematics and Statistics while pursuing their primary graduate degree in another department. Interested students must apply for admission to the program. Please contact our academic staff if you have any questions.
* Please note that the MSE program in Financial Mathematics and the MSE program in Data Science are not open to Dual-Degree students.
