Graduate Courses

All students planning to pursue a Ph.D. degree in the Department of Mathematics must pass Qualifying Examinations in each of three areas: Algebra, Analysis, and Topology. These exams are based on material from core sequences in these areas: MATH 5353 / 5363 (Abstract Algebra I and II); MATH 5453 / 5463 (Real Analysis I and II); and MATH 5853 / 5863 (Topology I and II). These three core sequences also form the basis of the M.A. degree offered by the Department.

Full list of courses that are available

Depending on student interest each semester, the department draws from the course catalog to determine which courses will be offered. For the complete list of courses, see the Catalog. Note, you will need to scroll down to the 5000- and 6000-level courses. However, there are some 4000-level courses which can count as graduate credit for Master's students.
