The graduate certificate in Mathematical Modeling in Bioscience will provide those with a traditional background in science, mathematics, or technology the skills and content knowledge needed for work in the high-demand, highly-relevant area of mathematical and computational bioscience. Five online courses are required for the completion of the certificate, which will cover the fundamentals of predictive modeling, data mining and visualization, mathematical modeling in biomedicine and the study of computational complexity that is required for data science. A student can use the certificate as a stand-alone achievement or to enhance a graduate degree in a related field.  The 15 hours required for the certificate can also be applied towards a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Mathematical Sciences. Therefore, these courses can either serve as a bridge to graduate school or employment in research and development in biotechnology.

Total Required for Program: 15 Credit Hours
