What can be different options for a MS in applied Math ?

In summary, depending on your location and interests, you can pursue a master's degree in applied mathematics in various fields, such as artificial intelligence and cryptography. Some universities, like those in the Netherlands, offer a wide range of options. In Canada, there are also universities that offer terminal masters programs in applied math, such as the University of Waterloo and the University of British Columbia.

It depends on where you want to do this and what your interests are. For example, in the Netherlands you can pursue a master in pretty much any field of applied mathematics of your choice. What subjects did you enjoy during your bachelor? What field(s) of application have your interest?

I have interest in Artificial Intelligence and Cryptography. I have taken a few courses on neuro-science and enjoy doing them

To the OP:

It would help if you could tell us where you are located, and whether you are interested in pursuing graduate studies outside of your country or not, since it is difficult to answer your question otherwise.

In Canada (where I'm from), there are a number of universities that offer terminal masters programs in applied math. Here are a couple of examples:
