Applied mathematics deals with mathematical techniques used in other areas, eg physics, engineering, statistics, computing, etc. You would need to consult the course notes or curriculum for specifics on what is covered, but the traditional subjects include differential calculus, approximation theories and applied statistics. The line is probably blurring now with greater emphasis on operations research and mathematical techniques in computing become more important.
