Thus it will be a lot of courses in stuff like:

-PDE's

-Non linear waves

-Scientific modeling

-Scientific computing

-Classical mechanics

-Electromagnetism

-Computational physics

etc.

Keep in mind this will be on top of a very strong bachelor's degree in math (big focus on analysis and continuous mathematics in general).

Thus I would be looking for careers in mathematical modeling (I'm assuming!), I'm not sure what the difference is between that and computational science. Can someone let me know how I could expect to fare on the job market with this type of background? I've searched comp. science/physics on various job search sites and it seems like everything that comes up is for stuff associated with universities and they all want Phds.

The reason I like this degree is because I'm hoping it will allow me to explore other areas of science and allow me to apply my math expertise to them in creative ways. But can I break into this field with just a masters?
