DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS, STATISTICS, AND PHYSICS ###
Course Requirements for MS

A) 24 hours in Math/Stat courses numbered 700 or above

B) 33 graduate hours (Math/Stat courses below 600 excluded)

C) Three two-semester sequences from those listed below

The possible two-semester sequences are the following. Real Analysis is offered every year. All other sequences are offered in alternate years. Both semesters of at least 3 of these sequence most be completed.

**UPPER-DIVISION UNDERGRADUATE COURSES WHICH COUNT TOWARD GRADUATE CREDIT**

(At most, three 600-level courses may be used toward MS degree; none toward PhD degree.)

Course |
Number | Prerequisites |

Elementary Number Theory |
