# Degree & Course Options

There are many ways to view applied mathematics. One definition concentrates on the advances in mathematical methods that have had an impact on applications (e.g., the analysis of the nonlinear partial differential equations that underlie fluid mechanics).

We like to think of applied mathematics in the context of an application, and hence, *we define applied mathematics to be the use of mathematics to make a substantial contribution to some field of human inquiry*.
